The River
Rocky Dickerson

That moment
             when spirit moved me
Grabbed my heart
             and wrote her name all over it
The river of my love
             I release it slowly to her
                         not to overwhelm her
The river of her love
             held behind her dam
                         how I long for her to release it
                         and I desire to become drenched in it
