The Girl Who Walks the River

Light was waking,
stars were stars.
She was walking
by the river.
Birds had settled,
bats were sailing
underneath the night.

Breathing in and
breathing out, the
words were fading
like a sunset.
Songs were floating
down the river,
bathed in ghostly light.

Here she wanders,
here she whispers,
here she stands and
here she shivers.
Here we watch her
gliding ever
onward into night.

She was waking,
stars were bright.
Breath was fading,
heartbeat slight.
Oh the birds and
oh the river,
always towards the light

Oh the girl who
walks the river
ghostly through the night.
