Born in the icy mountains covered by snow,
With a purpose the river begins to flow.
Didn’t stop to think about the journey unknown,
Didn’t ask for the path to be shown.
It found its way as it grew,
Learnt to adapt and be resilient to few.
Maybe she believes in destiny,
In the sea she looks for serenity.
She dodges mountains and traces land,
Some paths clear as she commands.
She cuts through rocks but not with power,
Perseverance is the reason for this scour.
The sea is her haven,
And she longs for salvation.
When the moment finally arrives,
The river sighs and the sea smiles.
He opens his arms to embrace her once,
After a lifetime of separation they are finally one.
