Water

Blinded by the sound of trickling water,

Fog blurred moment time grows shorter,

An instant,

A moment,

Pause...

Here then gone into darkness she seeps,

Weighted down slipping into the merky deep,

An instant,

A moment,

Breathe...

Dancing brolgas take flight,

Passing through a blood moon night,

Drip, drip, drip the cascading water,

A lullaby sung for a fallen daughter,

An instant,

A moment,

She cries...

Beasts run wild,

Mother left without a child,

Drip, drip, drip water cascading,

Drip, drip, drip daylight fading,

Reflections on a shallow edge,

Mirror to her soul, her heartfelt pledge,

Drip, drip, drip trickling water runs past,

Drip, drip, drip their moment did not last,

Trembling heart, empty arms on a cold winters morning,

Mother left vacant, abated in mourning,

An instant,

A moment,

Heart broken...

A moment in the fog, time grows shorter,

Blinded by the sound of trickling water.
