I called out to you
You, who was standing at the edge of the river,
Watching the ripples and the stories it unravelled
On its journey from the heavens
Of all the tales it knew but wouldn’t say
Of all the love it had seen and washed away
Of all the tears that smelt of love and trickled into the earth
I called you to wait
To take me with you into its heart.

I called out to you
You, who was holding yourself up at the sky
Above all the streetlights and the smog in the city below
Drowning the sounds of cars that reminded you of the hours gone by
Of the bustle and drone of life that you had left behind
Of the home you once knew but now chose to forget
Of love and lust and the stories untold
I called you to wait
To take me with you into the high

—————3————————-

I called out to you
You, who was sitting at your door,
Wiping away tears of pain
And the sorrows that you held in your heart
Of all the stories that you had heard but forgot to retell
To the generations that passed under your eyes
Of all the experiences you have had and warned the young
But they never heard your tale
I called you to wait
But it was you
Who walked away forever.
