River's Edge By R. Cary

River’s Edge

By R. Cary

Walking on the river's edge my soul only thinks to drift

Wondering in my heart, a flowing stream, 

A consciousness pulsing along the earth

Beating its own path

Running its own course

If I crossed the river's edge

If only I knew its rhythm

I could jump right in 

Live as one with this earth

Through the river's muse, I could be as one

If only I was brave enough

To let go, to face my fears of uncertainty

To trust this river, to listen to its eternal bliss.

If I only I knew how to live in my instincts, 

To trust my own self beliefs saying to myself, 

I can only live for the day next if 

Only I knew tomorrow would never come

I would live like today was my last

And jump in this river's course.

If only I could let this river guide me

Letting it give to me truth in this life 

Truth in what was here before me

A living history right in front me. 

If only I knew what this river knew

How much more knowledge this river has than I do. 

So much I want to know,

Each ripple an exposure of truth,

Each turn of life at this river’s edge

If only I knew what was ahead on this journey,

The life this river has carved to live 

A story we should all see in our humanity

We over time have our truth to become.

If only I could tell our truth, our

Beaten paths wearing this world 

Into canyons of our will letting truth 

And pureness arrive in our ripples of faith.

If only I could see

We are the river flowing with purpose with this earth

A relentless humanity living as this mother earth

If only I could see.
