as I fall through the water
accumulating down below
I listen as you sing
your sad sad song
like falling up a waterfall
of emotion
falling in reverse
but always looping

Watch the water slowly flowing down,

Whilst it makes a soft and gentle sound.

And may even say that it is our duty,

To witness such relaxing peace.

A feeling I wish would never cease.
