Like an Ever Flowing River

Updated on July 3, 2016
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia with my hubby, Martin & cat, Sid.

Like an ever flowing river,

life goes ever churning on.

At times we are sitting,

in a peaceful, quiet pond.

At times we hit the rapids -

that send us spinning wildly about.

Like an ever flowing river,

life leads us on.

Someday we flow into the sea -

where we drift wondering where to go next.

Someday we flow into an ocean -

where we can ride the high waves.

We sit on top of the world for awhile,

before another whirlpool,

pulls us under.

Like an ever flowing river,

life takes us farther and farther.

Some days are like mellow Sundays

and some like never-ending Mondays.

Life can be good and life can be bad -

we just have to go with the flow.

Like an ever flowing river,

life leads us on and on.

Along the way we collect so many memories

and friends so dear to us.

Like an ever flowing river -

life’s quite a wild ride.

      Life is a wild ride. I wouldn't trade it in for anything.

      Rolling against the flow only causes turbulence. This is beautifully written and a blessing to all who read it.

      Well, I'm just along for the ride on this river of life, enjoying the scenery as I float by. My job is to not try to change the natural flow. :)

      Of course I loved this.

      Hi So does give us twists and turns and ebbs and flows like the oceans and seas....going 'with the flow' is really the best after all, isn't it?

      Angels are on the way to you ps

      Yes 'me' Dear, a flowing river, all right. We meander and spiral a bit, and sometimes shrubs block our path, he he. It's all good, though (chuckle)

      I like the 'help the neighbour' video and the urgency in doing and getting on. Great poem!
