A Place Beside A River - Poem by GREENWOLFE 1962

There's a place beside a river
That you might know as well.
On the banks we call contentment
Near the place where lovers dwell.

It's not so far from Heaven.
Though it's not quite that, you see.
There must be a place for lonely
And their dreams that used to be.

It's a place to leave our sorrow.
And a place to not regret.
A place that gives us pleasure
In our sadness even yet.

Though our memories often linger
And our dreams may come and go,
The place beside the river
Is a place that we should know.

So, if by chance, you see me there
In a memory or a dream.
You'll know I've found contentment
In the water of the stream.

    In the water of the stream.

    It's a place to leave our sorrow.
    And a place to not regret.
    A place that gives us pleasure
    In our sadness even yet.
    - - - - - - - - We hold in ourselves some loving memories that give us comfort even in harshest days.
    A wonderful poem of love, thanks for sharing.
