Please do not leave me behind Riverside,
for, in the centre of all things I stand
that make out my existing stars and land,
the universe itself from me does hide
when I am not there to see or feel
what it chooses to me to reveal.
I beg you Riverside leave me not behind,
for, on your banks I have found a home
that is unrivalled with the views of the blind
who make up the world but has not come.
For god’s sake do not leave me,
for, it is not I who travel from you,
it is you who shifts from me.
