Life is like a river...

by Romantic Lover

Life is like a river
As it flows so smoothly
Sometimes with patchy spots
Sometimes calm and freely

I sometimes find I'm drifting
Thinking about life
The happy moments I've had
Yet some full of strife

I guess I often try too hard
To analyze and guess
To scrutinize and search deeper
My life, I will confess

Some days are just wonderful
A sincere smile on me
Other days just mind boggling
And a smile is just phony

Yet I hope tomorrow is calm
Like the river after a storm
And I wonder if he'll be there
To simply keep my heart warm

The long, endless river
A destined path does it go
When it approaches a split
Which way will it flow

I struggle for the solution
To what awaits me there
And yet this weak illusion
Always fades before my stare

I'm at that crossroad
And totally at a loss
Which path do I follow
Or a coin do I toss

Each experience I have had
Just adds upon the next
Will it lead to my destiny
Or will I still be perplexed

I'm in the middle of a storm
And the waves are so high
When will this river settle
When will this river lie

Life is like a river
As it flows so smoothly
Sometimes with patchy spots
Sometimes calm and freely.
