Beside Still Waters 🌹



I saw fountains flowing
With eternal promises
But I made a diversion...
I am now a shadow
Seeking towards light
Longing for respite
From the storms' deluge...

My memory is stirred
Of the days of yore
When you held my hand
And led me right...
Now long lost
A prodigal
I hear your voice again
In the winds
Beside still waters
You still beckon...

I tasted the freedom
Of the wild wild seas
And their snares
But with a broken heart
And a hard lesson learned...
Then I see you
A breath of fresh air
Beside still waters
Leading me
To true liberty...

In endless silence
I hear the voice I knew
Beside still waters
The echoes of His love
Then harmony and peace
Like I never would have
Oh my my!
Why did I ever stray?...

I am a prodigal stranded
I must follow
The still waters
To lead me back
To unearthly joy
And home
Where I always belonged...
