Cry me a river

Never lament the tears
That fell in love with
River's edge
Swallowed up forever
By tides and waves
No shame in crying
Just a welling over
Of unfathomable emotion
Spills from clear blue pools
Through soft lashes of grasses
Drop down downy mounds
Of moss covered round
Boulders
Slip through crevice
Lingering on lips
Recalling the moment
We refused to break
The surface tension
Instead hovering lightly
Like blossom petal on cheek
A dragonfly drinking
Not to disturb
Still waters beneath
Holding endless peace
Like cupped hands
Around a warm face
Breathing each to each
River Derwent
