A Life Together

We crossed the river and back
it took us by surprise
the torrent’s force was calmed
by outing all the lies

We crossed the river and back
and no expense was spared
the nights were fully paid
the days were not as feared

We crossed the river and back
amazed that we returned
as all the monsters met
became the lessons learned

We crossed the river and back
so no-one said good-bye
the crowds stood on the bank
and waived a simple “hi!”

And that’s how life emerged
denying talk of lack
the inner journey home -
we crossed the river and back.
