On The River Bank


As I sit here all alone with the tranquility of nature there before my eyes

The gentle current of the Suwannee drifts by just like the days of our life

Some days of our life seem to flow so even and extremely smooth

While others have treacherous currents that we have to fight hard through

The steep banks across the river side and on the bank beneath my feet

Represent the challenges of life we climb every day that we are forced to meet

But in the end it seems so simple with deer everywhere and birds chirping in the trees

The simple beauty of it all makes me want to take a moment to give thanks there on my knees

There is nothing that puts life into perspective like this simple moment here that I see

Everyone needs to take a break and sit on a river bank for just a moment just like me

From My World to Yours,

Bob Baker
