The river flows so silently
As the moon shines up above
I sit and watch the water flow
As I ponder on my love


The sun rises in the east
As the dawn breaks through the sky
I wake up to a new day
With hope and energy in my eyes

The flowers bloom so beautifully
In the gardens all around
I stop and smell the roses
As I wander through the town

The birds sing their sweet melodies
As the day begins to fade
I close my eyes and listen
To the music that they made


As the night falls and the stars appear
I lay down and dream of you
For in my heart, you are always near
No matter what the world may do


The river flows so silently
As the moon shines up above
I sit and watch the water flow
As I ponder on my love
