Floating downstream like swans in the sun,
Surrounded by friends and lovers,
We looked on smiling,
At the evening so bright,
River behind and the fading delight,

I knew her back from when she was young,
Days blow in faster than rounds from a gun,
Scattered like shells and lost to the sea,
Like the river, the days flow

I have all these memories,
I don’t know what they are for,
I have them and I cannot help it,
Some overflow and spill out like waves,
And some I will harbour for all of my days.

I like burn like oil,
You grew like a flower,
Rising towards your magical hour,
For I was not yours and you were not mine,
But true love it finds us when it is time.

You drove back down town,
To highways that I remember,
Happy for you and happy for me,
The old times and the new,
I lay down in,
In love with the night,
My new love beside me,
A radiant light,
Fading away along with my thoughts,
And like a train, I trail on
