The River of Life

 

Mother of wonder, daughter and wife,

Flowing in you is the river of life.

Your children grow in you, then you grow up with them.

Until they cast off into the mystery wind.

 

Mother of Worry, mother of faith,

Unable to rest until your babies are safe.

Protecting and holding, and slowly letting go.

You are the banks so the river can flow.

 

And the river will carry you along, along.

The river will carry you along.

The children you deliver you will carry like the river.

You will carry the river along.

 

Mother of nurture, mother of growth,

You feed so many with your body and soul.

You hold back the darkness and encourage the light.

Wrap your wings of laughter round them tight.

 

And the river will carry you along, along.

The river will carry you along.

The children you deliver you will carry like the river.

You will carry the river along.

 

Sometimes it’s all too much,

When it’s out of your hands and beyond your touch.

Sometimes, you’ve just got to sit still,

And let the river flood, let the waters spill.

 

And the river will carry you along, along, along.

The river’s gonna carry you along.

The children you deliver you will carry like the river.

You will carry the river along.
