Louisville, Mississippi, USA
The River of Life
Life is a mighty river
Its currents swiftly flowing
And only this great river
Knows exactly where it is going.
The turns can be treacherous
And the waters can be rough
For the harshness of this river
Can make you think you've had enough.
Then sometimes the waters grow calm
And you gently roll downstream
With time to stop and enjoy
The beauty of everything.
So in the power of this mighty river
There is only one thing worth knowing
The river is wise, even when it's harsh, and we
Have to follow the current ever flowing.
~you reached inside, you touched my heart,
and I am all the better for it~
