I walk down to the lonely stream –
The water is shining like the sun
And I sit on our big rock.
I feel you sit down next to me.
We used to throw pebbles,
Little pebbles at the fish.
The water reminds me of you –
It still glistens like your soul: clear and pure.
The wind gently rustles the reeds
And I know you’re there –
I can smell it,
Your spirit is in the fresh air.
I walk along the riverside
Feeling the sand under my feet
Knowing things happened too quickly.
Our tree still stands tall –
Beautiful and green with life.
I can see you perched in a branch
Right where you felt at peace.
Our little waterfall trickles softly…
I peer over and see my face – for a second –
Then blurred out by my tears…
Tears of joy that you’re happy now.
