I Am A River - Poem by Anu Shraddha

I am a river.
I am ancient as the mountains.
I am older than the trees.

I am a river that travels
along the banks, past the green trees and upon the wide stones.
I am a river that surges
through your homes, your fields, and your hearts.
I am a river that meanders
by the meadows, by the mountains, and by the sunny valleys.

I am a river.
I go down by the broken depths.
I go by the forgotten villages.
I go past the cities crammed to the very windows with people.

I am a river.
I am crystal clear during the day.
I shine like the sun at midday.
I run silently during the moon-lit night.

I am a river.
I sing before the graves.
I turn my face towards the sacred places.

I am a river.
I am a symbol of eternal happiness.
I am a sign of constant change.
I take all in my stride.
I am not held back by my pride.

I am a river.
I am in no hurry.
I am just content to roam.
I flow towards the ocean
for I know that is my home.

That hour will come
when I will have to disperse myself into the ocean.
when I will have to wash my eyes with the sea.
when I will have to silence my luminous song.

That day will come,
when in those immense seas
I will no longer see my fertile fields,
I will never again see my green trees,
I will never feel my neighbourly breeze.
I will see nothing except that immense blue heaven
where everything is dissolved in that vast expanse of salty water,
where one more song or another poem
will mean nothing more than a little river trickling down to join me in the sea.
