River Flow

Written June 22, 2012


He's come by river highway
He's come for all you know
Time is of the essence
Effervescent evanescence

Go and find the River Man
He's come to take me away
Softly, swiftly
He's come to take me today

Tell him all you can
To try to stall a man
Slowly fade away
Into all tomorrow's yesterdays

Better reach for the sky
As you're fixin' to die
And pray subtly to the lord
River lay down your sword

Go and find the River Man
He's come to take me away
Softly, swiftly
He's come to take me today

Drowning ever faster
Sinking into plaster
To cover painted dreams
That lie beneath my seams

Is that the way the river flows
To end undoing souls
From all they yearn to reach
Snapped when time beseeched

Go and find the River Man
He's come to take me away
Softly, swiftly
He's come to take me today

Oh have you heard the news
The river's been cut in two
So now it's time to choose
Down which path I will peruse

    this one reminds me of a parable, well not exactly but perhaps a modern day psalm. It's also so lyrical. Very nice.
