One Single Impression: River


[Click on picture to enlarge]

River of Tears

I lay down my head
I hope to sleep
My river runs high
High with tears I've shed
Shed those tears for you

Dreaming I hear you call
From the other side
That river I'll cross
Meet your arms to abide
River is my dowry for you

Oh were it to come true
Then true to you I'd be
Tears of joy would shout
Years of love we could share
River never running dry
