Dreams (Life Moves Like Water)


From the gentle shifting tides

Wandering dreams float in

On the river of evening

A whispering flow of night-secrets

The slow drift of foreshadowed pain

Unwept tears and sorrowful waters

Ripples in all directions

Always in tremulous motion

Spreading to the farthest shore

Life moves like water

Falling swiftly and darkly, into itself

Further into the murky depths

Unfathomably deep

These waters contain me

Yet we, being one soul

The thread of you finds me

With empty hands

And seeks an answer in kind

From my heart to yours
