Wednesday, January 4

By the River

flowing like music
calm as night
rushing like the wind
but soothing to the sight

clear as crystal
mirroring the sky above
drowning in your beauty
swept away by love

take me away
to the forest of dreams
where wishes come true
and happiness gleams

yet wake me, if you must
with a plash from thee
that I may differ make-believe
from reality

This is a very lovely piece, Kuya Nate. I especially like this:

take me away
to the forest of dreams

That is one hell of a nice couple of lines.

Keep on writing. More, more, more!
