A Widow by Choice

They told me to make peace

They told me to make peace with what I have lost,

They told me to make peace with what I have lost, to confront the dulling rush of the river but

They told me to make peace with what I have lost, to confront the dulling rush of the river but they don’t understand.

They told me to make peace with what I have lost, to confront the dulling rush of the river but they don’t understand. Nothing has been lost.

Water, I have faced— Conquered, as it bows at my feet.

Water, I have faced— Conquered, as it bows at my feet. Oh, if only you had seen

Water, I have faced— Conquered, as it bows at my feet. Oh, if only you had seen how his frantic eyes bore into mine.

Water, I have faced— Conquered, as it bows at my feet. Oh, if only you had seen how his frantic eyes bore into mine. His lips so serenely blue,

Water, I have faced— Conquered, as it bows at my feet. Oh, if only you had seen how his frantic eyes bore into mine. His lips so serenely blue, as if the ocean herself had kissed him.

Yet, the feel of cotton, I can touch no more. For all I feel is his chest struggling to rise and fall against vengeful fists.

I saw it all come to an end

I saw it all come to an end as his eyes grew silent,

I saw it all come to an end as his eyes grew silent, dawning with recognition.
