Life’s Stream, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Life's StreamWoman’s Head (detail), Leonardo da Vinci (c.1500)

Life’s Stream

I see on your eye the very first drop
The first one that is direct from your heart
Allow me be the one to make it stop
So never again will I let it start

Oh, what a fool, the one who made you cry
Ever so selfish in his nasty need
To deeply hurt you, I would rather die
Never letting  your loving heart to bleed

Come, find your quiet comfort in my arms
From my lips not a word to be spoken
I will protect you from all future harms
Our heart strings I shall lovingly fasten

Let your mind go into a pleasant dream
Of just you and I floating on life’s stream
