There is a river running smoothly

And it runs smoothly ‘round the bend

There is a message in the bottle

And it is to you I wish to send

The river may be running smooth

But it will easily grow bored

Faster will the river go

But I don’t worry; be assured

I will tell you what the message said

What the world deserved o know

I am about to tell you what it said

So listen; here I go:

Thank you for being who you are

And please don’t ever change

I love every single inch of you

I know this may sound strange

What I feel exceeds compassion

It makes all heat feel cold
