The River

The River.


The river gently flowing in the moonlight
The stars like diamonds, gazing from above
And life it seemed so vast
All present and all past
And all existence glowed with mystic love.

I felt those velvet raindrops as they touched me.
Caressing my soft skin to make it glow.
Sweet mystery astounds
Such beauty all around
And all that ever was it seemed to flow.

I searched so deep within to find the answers
As tears they softly flowed from happy eyes.
That peace it was so deep
And life felt so complete
And all around the rain fell from the skies.

And then it came, I felt that truth within me
That I was nothing, yet so very much.
And the truth within my soul
It made me feel so whole
As love looked down and thrilled me with it’s touch.
