30 Poems in 30 Days #2 – Rivers

We drift along
Silently floating
Up and down
Carried by winds beyond us
Beyond our control

The gentle waves
Whisper fears
Of the unknown
Fears beyond us
Beyond our control

We are carried by rivers
Of time
Of memory
Of souls forgotten
Remembered only in the oldest stories

Cautiously we approach the horizon
A horizon that seems
Never to get closer
Never within reach

As we drift
Upon these rivers
