River And Sky

As the river flows past
Our secret rendez-vous
My heart beats slightly faster
From anticipation
Of locking our arms
In sensuous embrace
While passions blend
Our souls into one
The weeks of patiently waiting
And dying inside
Now end as I grasp
Your perspiring hand
Tracing each finger
Each tremble
In my mind
Only when a chilled gust
Wakes me to reality
Do I understand
That I am alone
With this cold river
Flowing ever onward
As thunderclouds
Fill a saddening sky
