I loved to watch the river, and would dip a foot or toe
For would calm my thoughts so gently, as it wound with steady flow
Would often jump into it freely, sometimes would race along it\'s edge
With it\'s cool embracing fingers, to take away the days hot pledge

For the time I spent a swimming, would always bring a smile inside
To chase a saddened mood a fleeting, with carefree playing cause to hide
Skipping in and out of pleasures, upon the banks would often run
Tease a fish or two in chasing, oh what delightful playful fun

But upstream a storm was building, as heavy rains began to pour
Out of sight the drops would tumble, to start their flood in monstrous roar
Rumbling skies and flashing turmoil, from darkened skies with harsh intent
Up above the clouds were crying, weeping sheets of water sent

The thunder\'s blast was never echoed, as the stream began to rise
Never thought impending danger, was to spring before my eyes
I was taken by the river, never saw what was to come
As it yanked and pulled me under, as I gasped at what was done

I would loose this hopeless battle, as it\'s force could nay be beat
As my life was passing swiftly, as the struggle took back seat
Now looking back I wonder, if anyone could be prepared
To face the flood of fears enormous, and feel that none had ever cared
