Waterfalls

They say Rome wasn't built in a day

And neither were waterfalls by the way

 

It took many a year for the waterfall to flow

And wash away what was there before

 

It took many a heartbreak for the waterfall to fill

And hide the emptiness that was there so still

 

It took many a tear for the waterfall to come

And bury the undone.

 

And once arrived so full and free 

The waterfall did not leave

It flows and sways, and thrashes and bashes

To remind those that did not believe

 

It took many a year for the waterfall to flow

and now the waterfall will not go

 

It took many a heartbreak for the waterfall to fill

And now those hearts can do what they will

 

It took many a tear for the waterfall to come

Now look what they've done

 

They say Rome wasn't built in a day

And neither were waterfalls by the way
