Rivers O'Donahue Poems
If Not For You

The first snow brushed the ground, As the sky lit up without a sound, And we stood below, barefoot and amazed, Wide-eyed in surprise, heads in a daze.

How Should I Feel?
How should I feel? When I hate that I love the girl That loves a different guy When he makes her sad
Let's Just Scream.
Scream, come now scream
let's finish this fairytale like a bad dream

Day after day
