Meditation From A Bridge I stand alone and listen To the water rushing Over obstacles it's flowing Ever onward it is heading Wherever it will go If only time were not a river In one direction surging From past to future moving Every instant carrying Passed mistakes of long ago If I could ride that river backwards To those mistakes I am wishing I had the option of fixing Certain I could knowing Everything I now know I stand and watch the water This is idle thinking New mistakes I would be making Besides time is ongoing I cannot reverse the flow. Your peace is like a river Ever swelling Never ceasing In Your showing Though the past is set in stone And I cannot hope to change it My way You were attending Your promise You were keeping Even though I was unseeing I was not alone You were always with me In this joining There's no hindering Your redeeming You have made my past Your own Your peace the greater river The flow revealing You give meaning The past measuring Just how much I have grown. Life in You is like a river First the wading Then the swimming Then the full immersing As you carry me along I am surrounded by the water Truest living All consuming Perfect cleaning Of all I have done wrong Your Spirit is the water He's imbuing And renewing Then He's teaching Words of a new song In this river of Your life Constant flowing Forever growing Eternal knowing In You is where I belong.
