Water Under This Bridge - Poem by Kingsley Olaleye Reuben

The perfect night has gained a flaw
You are not by my side, the prettiest thing my eyes saw.
You had me, my heart and I,
Your absence crushes me, I feel to cry.
I would move mountains for you, give diamonds and rings
If only you could come to me on angels wings.
This couple I see is as warm as can be
They remind me of times we spent together; just you and me.
These waters are my memories both murky and clear
And if I listen close enough your voice in them I hear.
I'm not asking for a miracle, or for some sign to appear,
I just long for you that's all and tonight I wish you were here.
This water passes under London Bridge like my memories of past before
But memories, our memories will be forever, in my mind to store.
The city lights reflect on the water, I smile at some memories it highlights and I see,
Lovely memories of when we were together, happy and free.
The cold winds of time blow against me and tell me I must move on,
Across the water you are somewhere and to you my love still will belong.
However, I am no time traveller; I cannot return to the past
The suicide of leaping from this bridge will not make the memories of love last.
Somewhere you are singing sweet melody, making ripples upon the water for me to hear,
And I recite this poem for you, for the wind to deliver to your ear.
