Where the River Bends

Our memories were 
Once possibilities of
God’s timeless perfection
Our lives predicted by 
Laws of grace, our dreams
Forgotten by the freedom
Of moments lost and found
An everlasting river of moments
Rushing to fall apart again and
Again, more than a mother or father
God is a friend, the one who holds us
