The river

Return to the river
Remembering lost summer days
The signs of erosion
The places the old bank had caved

All alone I roamed this land
Walked the valley end to end
Knew every trail and path

I broke for the forest
Through branches and dense creeper vine
'Til I found my bearings
The rusted “No Trespassing” sign

Trace the scar as evidence
The time I fell climbing the fence
It's fading with the past

And I'll wait
Drift away

If you change your mind
I'll be searching in the shadows

If you have the time
Cross the river where it's shallow

You'll see the other side

Slow walk in the meadow
Hands trailing in dry summer grass
Return home in sorrow
Retracing the overgrown path

It's left behind, it's sun and sky
Nobody cares, no one to find
I found my way at last

Back then this was freedom
But now memories crowd in too close
Unsure of this feeling
Afraid of what I need the most

It's time to go, it's not my home
I don't live here anymore

The wind begins to blow
