floating river

What is this feeling that is consuming my heart? How is it I have not known it before in all my years and through all the tears of what was lost and never gained? It is arising within me like the sun coming up in my soul. It is flooding me and making me float. I had been traveling for so long and laid down in this dried up river bed last night to stare up at the stars, so bright, so luminous, so energizing. Somewhere in the night I fell into the deepest sleep, it was cleansing my mind and shutting off the valve of past rivers feeding my soul with their polluted waters. Now I have awakened, as the water has lifted me off the ground and is gently carrying me, and moving my body down the stream…. floating… being held….. mysteriously carried. Where did this water come from? How did this river awaken and come to me? From what source has it emerged?

Where is the fear that the unknown used to give me? Has it washed away? Are these waters too pure for fear? I am gently placed on a rock in the stream. I climb up and stare at where I came from, but I’ve come so far, and around so many curves, that I cannot see where I once was. The water breaks in front of me on the rock and rushes by me on either side and comes together beyond the rock. There is a song rising, I hear it. It is the sound of the waters breaking and the echoes on the mountains’ side coming to me and its rising in volume. I focus and the words are not a language but an etching on my heart… I feel them like a prayer, this prayer is becoming so intense that I cannot contain it anymore.

Here I am!!!…… I am here!!! You didn’t forget me, did you? You were always there, weren’t you?!!!! Thank you for not giving up on me, you knew I’d come to you! I am not afraid anymore, so let me drown in you, I know I will die, and then be resurrected into newness that I have never known. Come now, sweep me away, I don’t want to stand on solid ground, I know that I must lose control and yield to your power and your way. I’m ready, ready to drown in you, ready to die and be resurrected into you. For you only harm to heal, you only want to make me what I was born to be. So hurry and take my life now, let me be reborn into you, into these waters I will fall now, I will drown only to awaken brand new, leaving all the damage behind. Take me, take me all the way to the other side where I want to be. Take me all the way to the other side, where I long to be.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh…………………………………………………………………..sweep me off my feet

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh…………………………………………………………………I am yours forever…

Ohhhhhhhhhh…………………………………………………..you are my maker, I in you, you in me..
