Flowing Water

It should flow like the water in a brook.
These words I read from our favorite book.
Your eyes are closed now but I see you smile?
Still it makes me feel it’s all worthwhile.

The years go by slow since the accident.
I see it all clear now in the present.
The driver was drunk he hit us head on.
Your blood did flow on that fateful dawn.

I know these words by heart I love to read.
Now your time is near I read for my need.
Stumbling over now the words from our book.
It should flow like the water in a brook.
