The Rivers

Winding River
Winding River

Rivers

My love is like a river flowing
Swiftly as it heals unknowing
The hurts and pains which we are sharing
The troubles seem to us un-bearing.

Yet this river flows oar rocky paths
Smoothing stones as it gently passes
Providing power for all to share
Its path is seen by masses

This river sustains us in all ways
It washes away all our pains
Until it meets and intermingles
With the vast ocean planes

My love's river flows clear and clean
Without guile or guilt it gleams
It pierces both the heart and mind
Till soul and body are combined

His river meets mine in the vast ocean
Where the pain flows away without a notion
Without second thought it is replaced
With healing waters that calm and give grace

As we grow we move like the rivers
Our love it gleams and meets again
In the ocean of our love infinite
To fill at last our hearts and merge our souls forever
