Sunday Sentence(s): “The River”

This song has been speaking to me…I hope you love it like me!

You know a dream is like a river
Ever changin’ as it flows
And a dreamer’s just a vessel
That must follow where it goes
Trying to learn from what’s behind you
And never knowing what’s in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores

And I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I’ll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry

Too many times we stand aside
And let the waters slip away
‘Til what we put off ’til tomorrow
It has now become today

So don’t you sit upon the shoreline
And say you’re satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance that tide

And I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I’ll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry

There’s bound to be rough waters
And I know I’ll tke soome falls
With the good Lord as my captain
I can make it through them all

And I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I’ll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Lord, I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Yea

    Mish,
    I love the words in this one, too. Thank you so much for sharing this today, and for touching in me…that belief in “me” and in what is possible when we go after our dreams…

      Thanks for stopping by. Honestly, this song has so much more meaning to me now that I feel alive. If that makes sense. isn’t it interesting how quotes/stories/songs can have new and different meanings that were once not discovered.

      • Lance says:

        This makes so much sense…and something I too can very much relate to. I think of all these things that have meaning to me today, which just a couple of years ago meant nothing.

        This journey you are on…is a good one…

    Yup…. how kind of others to put words to my feelings. I makes me feel less alone and more on the right path. Thank you for this post, I am cutting and pasting these words so I can reread them and remind myself of why I choose the paths I choose.
