If the river were my friend- Poem #WorldRiversDay

If I meet a talking river,

I would be surprised.

I would think and think forever,

That is it my dream style?


I would tell her about happiness

And tell her about sadness.

I think then she will remove

All my loneliness.


She will be my favorite

As I love talking much.

And I will share with her everything

Even my chocolate Munch.


If she appears really

We will talk every time.

She will be my best friend

For the whole life time.


Swimming in her water

Will relax my heart.

It will feel like sitting,

In a royal cart.


Sweet voice and fresh air,

Around her streams,

Feels like I am enjoying

Sweet ice cream!!
