Like Stones Within a Brook

"the story we inherit"

Like stones within a brook, so our souls are washed in time,

the waters keep flowing over us, day after day,

we are washed by the mountain snow,

we are washed by the summer rain,

to be smoothed so gently, it is the timeless way.

 

Like stones within a brook, so our lives will always change,

the waters keep flowing over us, year by year,

we are washed by ever-changing water,

we are washed, so slowly washed away,

to lose ourselves so gently, it is by mortal tears.

 

Like stones within a brook, so our spirits are transformed,

the waters keep flowing over us, you and me,

we are kissed by moving waters,

we are touched by passing time,

until we too become as water, as water to the sea.

 

The End
