The River Crossing

Tales and Fables

A man once said:

β€œIt's a dangerous business,

going out your front door.”

And he was right

For deep is the river

and narrow the crossing

A river called melancholy

And a bridge called hope

A straight and narrow road

With no rails to catch you

Nothing to keep you from falling

Unless you trust in your footing

Unless you see where you're going

Unless you believe that you'll make it


And you will never fall
