River God

Rolling River God 
Little Stones are smooth 
Only once the water passes through
So I am a stone 
rough and grainy still 
Trying to reconcile this river's chill

But when I close my eyes 
and feel you rushing by 
I know that time brings change 
and change takes time 

And when the sunset comes 
my prayer would be this one 
that you might pick me up 
and notice that I am 
just a little smoother in your hand

Sometimes raging wild 
sometimes swollen high 
never have I known this river dry 
The deepest part of you 
is where I want to stay
and feel the sharpest edges wash away
