My river

There's a river near me
And it calls to me on the wind
It beckons me to the waters
Where solace lays in the undertow
And I imagine it there
The sinking, flowing down stream
And forgetting this drama
Leaving it behind on the shore forever

But there's another river calling out
Pleading with me to come
To ride its current
Somewhere laughing and playing
Dreaming down stream into bliss
Finding those uncharted lands
Exploring the shores and breaking point
Shifting the paradigms
And creating new landscapes

And yet there is another river
The skylark of a thousand stars
Dancing to the rhythm of the moon
Singing to my soul of unfound territory
It calls for me to come away
To embark on an epic journey
The river running over and through me
Traversing across all time as one
This is my river, the one calling me home
