the river


the river

The River


We went down to the river

Down to the stream

Breathing in the breath of life

God only could bring


Down by the river

We washed away our pain

Down by the river it's always the same


So where is hope?

It’s in the river

Where is life?

 It’s in the stream

 Where my soul can live again


So I'm going down by the river

Down by the stream

Where the breath life is

So I can breathe again


So IAm will be their

He's  going down by the river today

I 'm going give my life to his name


I'm swimming fast and swimming strong

I'm swimming in this narrow river all along

Down by the river today.



Down by the river

Down by

The stream

Its a great poem and also a beautiful song. Life is so close to nature and to God. It has a nice rhythm , 'down by the river' the melody haunts me. You have entwined self, God and nature and that is how it is. I loved it. Thank you, hope you'll read my poem "Oh! every breath of fresh air " welcome your comments.

A part from a few grammatical errors this was a very heart warming and inspirational poem. I am that I am. Nice. I wonder how many know who He is?



Not many are close enough to know who he is! Thanks for the comment.!!! : )

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
