River of Time

once upon
a nursery rhyme life began
on the river of time

through rapids wild down waterfalls
with smiles for few
and tears for all
some hopes survive while others drown some dreams are dashed some carry on
as creatures watch from silent shores we all drift by some rich
some poor

river of time
river of time
we all flow together on the river of time

and what of me circling round eddying
in thoughts profound then pulled off
by fate’s new day swept downstream
away
away

river of time
river of time
carry me home
oh river of time
