Death in the Seine

A poem by Simon Nguyen
It must be hard for the river Seine
To preside over unions and heartbreaks.
How many unions ended happily?
How many vows have been kept?
Even a serene Seine could not quell her sorrows.

It must be hard for a young girl's heart
To endure the pain of heartbreak. 
How cruel it is to betray her innocence
And break the vow made at the Seine.
All she could do is to find peace in the river
And sow regrets in her betrayer's heart.

May she rest well in the other world.
