Relief by the River

colorado park river

The day is warm

the sun high above the trees

contemplating life

on my knees


The river is cool

calming to my soul

giving refreshing water

like days of ole


Life seems so uncertain

as we contemplate the times

trusting that God will provide

safety from crimes


The river is peaceful

my soul is renewed

all is well

on this day anew


The storm has passed

we are cared for

life is now calm

it is time to soar
