But in the shadow of the night
You won’t see what I am like
I’m the one who’ll take you where you’re going
I’m a river that is going across your land
I’m a stranger with a black dove in my hand
Didn’t know that doves could be black. Then find out that there is much symbolism, such as here, in “Black Dove dream interpretations”:
The dove…alludes to the messenger, the letter, and the unexpected or the urgent information. According to legend, it was blessed by Noah after he was disappointed by a crow. He had sent the latter to view the condition of the water, but the crow, having seen carrion floating on the surface, forgot all about its mission. By contrast, the dove brought Noah a green leaf.
But never going home
