Standing in a River Dying of Thirst…
Senses frozen in time while the heart
orchestrates a symphony of happiness
and fear creating a painful bliss, life
extends beyond the depths of vision and
the world waits in silence like the aftermath
of a storm.
Unseen forces of the spirit and soul carry
dreams to paradise, beyond cliffs called
doubt, and it is there that one will find the
land where love is born.
Life can be a ship in turbulent waters or a
house built on rock; love survives when two
spirits, their hearts and souls journey through
life hand in hand.
Love is the resonance of faith and devotion
throughout eternity; love may cascades over
rocky streams filled with uncertainties before
flowing into a river of contentment.
Some find it and some do not; there are those
who just stand in the river waiting for that perfect
love to float by… while dying of thirst.
