Poem: River Swallow All Rivers

Written by empressjournee

Maybe I will dance for the sky

Where rainbows sprinkle

Glitter dust for you and I.

Maybe I will sing mellow songs

Hoping this will make you smile

Dry your weeping eyes.

Maybe I will imagine I can fly

While I cradle you in my arms

And pretend you are all mine.

Maybe I will ask you to stay

For a while, as I sing you,

A beautiful lullaby.

As you grow and it appears

There is no more smiles.

Maybe, Zaire I shall please you,

Before I take my last breath,

Before I say goodbye

Let your rivers swallow all rivers

And ‘let your love multiply!’

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
