River of Time

Time flows on our bodies

Leaves hills and canyons

Time flows on our cheeks

Turn a lake into a desert

Time flows in our hearts

Bury love in silence

 

The river of time flows slowly

The past has never passed

Just stay upstream

Unreachable

But when the fingers touched

When we look at each other

It opened a window

 

The river of time flows slowly

The future has happened

Just occurred downstream

Dark or light or unknowable

But it painted lines on the palm

It planted a hope in our hearts

Like the North Star pointing the direction

 

The river of time flows slowly

The presence is riding a white horse

Deep in the current of the river

Nowhere to hide nowhere to hide

We can only breathe with it

Let the senses fully open

Let the universe rush in

Let the heart follow the waves

 

Everything goes to silence

The river of time flows slowly

River of Time
