Run like the water in the stream.
Seep through the pores of the earth, and find its darkest secrets,
But don’t run away from me.
Trust in me.
Trust me like the waterbird trusts the tide.
I will not let you fall beneath the waves when we set out to sea,
But don’t float away from me.
Water will wash us clean of troubles, of fear, of insecurities.
It will rinse our eyes free of tears after late night calls that distance miles apart,
Or cool our boiling blood when the world will not listen to the peace we sing.
Water will carry us through the trials of time.
Our love will be forever preserved in the crystal glaciers of the north,
Or in the bellies of parched children on another shore.
Let it forever live on.
You are my source of life.
