Dream along the Avon River.

We walk along the bend down there by the river
The air is filled with a calming shiver
We walk the way we always went
Close to each other, hand in hand
Water covered in the streetlights silent glow
The river lies still, yet filled with flow
Swans and ducks still float along
Singing loud their evening song
The dam far in the distance
Keeping against the waters resistance
Forming a lake that lies like a mirror quiescent
Every thing seems so innocent.

The night slowly falls, the sun low upon the clearing sky
Daylights leaving slow and shy
There are trees standing tall and weeping down
There are trees carrying no crown
Aged over hundreds of years
No storm no weather fears
Red skies covering the horizon buoyant light
Curtains of night fall slow, dark, and slight
The lake lies like a mirror quiescent
Every thing seems so innocent

Old trees and branches, died long time before
Lying along the riverís shore
The smell of night is in the air
A soft wind blows from anywhere
I hold your hand, your hand that means so much
Feel your skin with gentle touch
Kept in my head a happy song
Here I want to stay. Here is where I shall belong
The lake lies like a mirror quiescent
Every thing seems so innocent

The words I spoke not so long ago
ďMy love.Ē These words are still there, but even so
I know, you follow me where ever I will go
The way we kissed that first night
Everything seemed so good, so right
The water shining, reflecting melted our soul
That night, Öwe found a common goal
Never will I forget when you turned and walked away
There was so much more that I had to say
The lake lies like a mirror quiescent
Every thing seems so innocent

Iím standing there with words to say
Dreaming you didnít walked away
My heart cries out for you
ďMy Love donít you know I love you too.Ē
Youíre disappeared around the bend ahead
Iím standing there wondering what would you have said
If you only could have known what more I had to say
But you just kept walking away
The lake lies like a mirror quiescent.
Every thing seems so innocent

The lake lies like a mirror quiescent
But Iím no longer innocent
The fear to lose, what I love so dear
Why canít you stay, why canít you be here
My heart longs for you, to feel your gentle touch
Deep in my soul you should know, ďI love you Öso muchĒ.

Poignant and haunting, this poem is lovely, and well worded.  I like the way you repeat the same line at the end of each stanza, leading to the climax.  So sad.  Thank you for sharing!

There is simply one thing I shall must do
And this is simply to "Thank You"
You have no idea how your words make me feel
I'm glad I signed my name to the ancient reel
Words can not express how lucky i am
To find such poeple, How shall i say "A Jem"
I must tell "Hoot_owl_rn" you have been right
The hearts of people here are open wide
A special tribute goes to thee
without you Ruth there wouldn't be a me
"Sunshine" you have pushed me too
For this my "friends" I all Thank You
I hope i will do justice here
my heart goes out to you with cheer
Forgive if i don't repeat all the names as listed up above
I shall send to you all a peace full dove.
Thank you.

Really wonderful HelmutB
I felt as though I was walking
along the same path.
I could almost smell it.

Thank you to all

May your day be as bright
