Step Into the Water

Step into the water, feel the current swirling 'round
Step into the water, feel the power nearly pull me down
Step into the water, feel the river running strong
Let the waters bring me home where I belong.

Seated on this cushion of moss 'neath a rhododendron tree
Tucked beneath her branches in a womb of reverie
The creek flows fast and muddy, and the bed is rocky and wild
But the water calls me in, "Come and join me for awhile."

Step into the water, feel the current swirling 'round
Step into the water, feel the power nearly pull me down
Step into the water, feel the river running strong
Let the waters bring me home where I belong.

One foot then the other, it's a tentative approach
With both feet on the bottom I think I can hold my own
But as I lift a foot to step ahead the force grabs onto me
Still I'm drawn to the deep of the middle, where the current's flowing free.

Step into the water, feel the current swirling 'round
Step into the water, feel the power nearly pull me down
Step into the water, feel the river running strong
Let the waters bring me home where I belong.

And standing in this deepest place, my life is under siege
I gather strength to ground myself and open to receive
There is a power in the waters, and I can take it in
There's a wisdom in the Universe carried on the wind.

Step into the water, feel the current swirling 'round
Step into the water, feel the power nearly pull me down
Step into the water, feel the river running strong
Let the waters bring me home where I belong.

And later in a northern pond, the voice again I hear
A summons to immerse myself and swim out past my fear
My body glides in fluid grace, a mermaid in this inland sea
I swim back over years and years as I move with strength and ease.
