The Sound of Water
Past, present, future
Passing before my eyes
Teaching me patience
Washing my thoughts away
Telling me, this too shall pass.
The sweetest sound
Always there, and everlasting
Won’t give up on my hopes and dreams
Tears fall down my cheeks
Finding their way into my heart.
Glowing in the sun, yet cold to your touch
Everything is not always as it seems
Take your time, learn your lessons.
Half empty or half full? Turn right or turn left?
Dive deep or stay close?
Keep your heart pure like the sound of water
And you will decide well.
Why pick and choose, either or?
Settling and compromising
When you can just flow
Through this nook and that corner
With time and persistence
Isn’t anything possible?
Restless waves pound the shore
Majestic and threatening
Pushing my dreams to the surface
All doubt floats to the top
Only to crash down on my plans again and again
Then rising me back through the swelling tide
Reminding me of the circle of life.
Oh, how beautiful is the sound of water.
