The River Comes Alive

My purpose is to get
The water flowing again
In your river
To stir you up and prod you
Invite you, beseech you
Squeeze you and tease you
To remember the innocence
You arrived here with
To embrace a deeper and deeper love
To celebrate the beauty of your soul
To fully embrace your human experience
But to live as though you are not time bound
My purpose is to liberate you into freedom
So we can meet and cry and laugh,
Dance and sing, and truly remember ourselves
And everything that is good
Will pour forth
From that frothy, beautiful river
And spread out into the world
As the healing balm it so needs.
