Glory Once More.


So much rain has fell,

I go down to My River,

It is so high but I can walk by it.

The water flowing so fast

and a dark brown colour.

I think back to those days

Where the green clear water

Went passed me at a sedate pace,

The swans and geese sailing,

Sailing peacefully along it.

But today as I walk by it

Its speed so fast,

It is not how I see my life.

My life has slowed

And every moment of it

Has become a time of wonder.

I no longer want speed in my life,

Every moment is special,

And I want to enjoy every one

And give them the time,

The time they deserve.

I know My River will ease

And the wonder that I enjoy will return,

And that day will bring glory,

Bring glory once more to  my life.

        Live your life as you choose. Your river will return to you one day, but the moments of life are fleeting. Enjoy them to the fullest. - Phil A.
