River Take My Heart


River take my heart
Flow me to the sea
Turn away my weakness
Twist away my grief
Roll me down the mountain
Rest me on your shore
Hold me in your comfort
Cleanse me evermore
River take my heart
Many miles from here
Ripple my reflection
Wash away my fear
Hide me in your darkness
Cover me with your soul
Wind me on a path
That will make me whole
River take my heart
Caress me in your dreams
Smooth away my edges
Break me at the seams
Bind me in your power
Release your love within
Test me in your sorrow
So I learn how to live
Poem by Ryan Hughes
Summer 2017
