This River

This river it takes me
Ain’t never am I done
Coursing inside this heart
A beggar I once was

Let wile this freedom wind
Snakes in a desert sand
Wilted lilies beneath
My empty lover’s hand
Pebbles tossed for magic
A skip to buy my faith
Scattered prayers waves of discord
As I walk to my grave
Phantom soul beguiles me
Seductress draped in red
Calling me forever
This place where I am safe
In fable she is heard
Rejoice this voice dissent
A hero of this child
Although she never was
