The poet challenged by

His lifelong partner about

Admitting the truth.

It’s an old debate about

Long lost statements and


Due to the changing


You don’t like the truth

She confronts him about

Past happenings.

That’s your truth

The poet states

Not mine.

Like a lively brook will

Eventually part

And two different streams

Will be formed

So does life form differently

In a half century partnership

So many things have been

Washed down into the great

Danube River

So many feelings have been


Hurt bitterly

And life together even in pain

Cannot be dissolved of all


One cannot step into the

Same river twice.

Life – the river.
