One day when I was standing,
Watching a mighty river flow,
I watched the water coming,
And also watched it go.

By Dark Blue Knight

Then suddenly I felt a twinge,
A certain kind of shiver,
As I realised in deepest thought,
My life is like that river.

By Dark Blue Knight

I’d started out so placid,
From somewhere up on high,
But very soon I picked up speed,
As the years went flashing by.

By Dark Blue Knight

At times my life was tranquil,
My peace it seemed to keep,
And spread to cover all I could,
Still waters running deep.

By Dark Blue Knight

And then without warning,
Was forced to pick up pace,
As all around me narrowed,
To keep up, I had to race.

By Dark Blue Knight

Things soon became so turbulent,
It hit me like a shock,
As I watch my life just tumble,
Like the water on the rocks.

By Dark Blue Knight

Somewhere in the distance,
I could hear the waters call,
I fall and then I stumble,
Down like a waterfall.

By Dark Blue Knight

But neither could we sit there,
Or in turbulent waters set,
Neither that mighty river,
Nor my life’s done as yet.

By Dark Blue Knight

Then I see the water,
Flowing onwards to the sea,
And have to stop and just ask out loud,
Where are the waters taking me.

By Dark Blue Knight

We both flow along so silent,
Round many of life’s bends,
Flowing ever constant,
Towards our inevitable end.

By Dark Blue Knight

For sometime will come the moment,
When the river flows no more,
But becomes part of the ocean,
And I join the sandy shore.

By Dark Blue Knight

It may be a long, long river,
Or merely just a stream,
So it is with our own lives,
We leave marks where we’ve been.

By Dark Blue Knight

So as that river’s waters,
Disappear into the tide,
So we to one day must leave this earth,
And join others who now hide.

By Dark Blue Knight

We’ll see again our loved ones,
Who once did like waters flow,
But this time will be forever,
There’ll be no tiring loads.

By Dark Blue Knight

But to reach that destination,
We must do what is our best,
Flow through life like a river,
And pass all of life’s tests.
