The River's Journey Poem Verses

Let us gather, hearts entwined,
To celebrate a life, a love refined,
Our dear one, a soul so bright,
A testament to love, and life's sweet flight.

We'll share our memories, laugh and cry,
Recount the moments, days gone by,
Their spirit lingers, a gentle breeze,
The river's journey, forever at ease.

With joy and sorrow, we'll raise our voice,
In honor of the life, that was their choice,
Our dear one, a love so true,
A celebration of life, in skies so blue.
