Life

I close my eyes
And feel it deep
I open them
And begin to weep
I try to hug
I try to hold
Something intangible
I feel so cold
And it looks so warm
But just out of reach
A bundle of mysteries
Which I cannot breach
A temptation and challenge
To try and understand
That which was made
By all human hands
A river of life
And it runs so deep
Pulsating, changing
Life without sleep
A connected conscious
Something we all understand
At the core of our being
An idea so grand
It consumes me
As it consumes us all
Yet eludes me
As I beckon and call
So sometimes I feel so lonely
And sometimes I feel so great
It’s the human river, flowing and ebbing
And I am caught in its wake.
