The Well - Poem by Amera Andersen

A flowing river fed the well
Before you left and said “farewell”
But now you’re gone and it is dry
I often ask and wonder why

Now just a hole, an empty shell
A flowing river fed the well
The river of love that had no end
Liquid of life that we would spend

I loved you so there was no doubt
The well dried up and left this drought
A flowing river fed the well
It kept me here, within your spell

The river’s gone, the well dried up
You left me with an empty cup
There’s no one left that I can tell
A flowing river fed the well
