I Am a River - The Song
Posted November 20, 2006
"I Am a River" by Bill Leslie
I am a river flowing beside you,
I am a voice in your dream,
Water like honey,
I am much more than I seem.
I am an ember faintly burning,
A fragment of love long ago,
Kindle my spirit,
And I will warm you,
You can feel your heart start to glow.
But you worry about the demon of darkness,
The snarling beast in the night,
With my release you will find peace,
Healing your wounds and mine.
I am a painter with prism and palette,
Sleeping inside of your soul,
Honor the purpose,
Cherish the wisdom,
And I will make you whole.
I am a meadow ablaze in crimson,
Come and rest with me here,
Bathe in the beauty,
Breathe in the fragrance,
And you will conquer your fear.
I am a river flowing beside you.
