I’ve gone down to the #river to pray each night
Since the king tides took you away
I’ve gone down on my knees in the fading light
Hearing echoes that begged me to stay

I’ve gone down past the point where your story ends
In the salt and the sea and the storm
I’ve gone down to the rocks where the river bends
What we love into what keeps us warm

I’ve gone down to the river to pray each night
For the strength to answer your cries
I’ve gone down and come up and I’m making this right
I love you. I loved you. Goodbye.
