Life Moves Like Water

Life Moves Like Water

From the gentle shifting tides

Wandering dreams float in

A wave of old familiar thoughts

On the river of evening

The whispering flow of night-secrets

And the slow drift

Of foreshadowed pain

Unwept tears

Sorrowful waters

Broken dreams

Ripples in all directions

Always in tremulous motion

Spreading to the farthest shore

Life moves like water

Watch it rush

Falling swiftly and darkly

Into itself

Further into the unknown

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
