The Woman By The River - Poem by Brian James Caffrey

All the love in the world is but a drop in the ocean,
When one already has a river in mind.
She moved with such grace and beauty,
Such an angel is hard to find.

She sat by the river,
Lying in the sun.
I wished to join her,
But Courage, I had none.

Her hazel hair shone like the water,
Glistening like gold.
She walked through the wood,
Eternally beautiful, strong and bold.

Her lips so soft, her eyes so gentle,
Few men are lucky to taste her kiss.
She sang softly by the river bank,
Her sweet sound is what I most miss.

For she has my heart, But I not her's,
She moves as the river flows.
But I will stay here and wait,
Where the memory of her never goes.
