I want to imagine you
crossing a river
that is smooth and calm

That alone could make me
at peace
At this bitter reality

And someday, my time of crossing
that river will come

It was a bumpy ride at acceptance
of loss, and of parting
at the most unexpected time

When we are about just starting our
new life together

The memories is all that I gather
and see vividly with my imagination.
Hold these memories in the palm of my hand
And throw it at the river
where you will flow smoothly

And you were there
Slowly, slowly
crossing in peace

For my sanity to keep.
