River Man

i talked to
the river man today.
he said you were
on your way.
he said,
he said,
he couldnt say
why you had
gone away.
i asked him why
it took so long
for you to realize
you were wrong,
to understand
my heart's not strong.
then the river man
sang me
a sad, sad song.
and i listened to
the river man.
