A Life Together (part-1)

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 waved a simple “hi!”  
And that’s how life emerged  
denying talk of lack  
the inner journey home -  
we crossed the river and back.
