Swimming to the Other Side

Pat Humphries

We are living neath the great big dipper, we are washed by the very same rain
We are swimming in the stream together, some in power and some in pain
We can worship this ground we walk on, cherishing the beings that we live beside
Loving spirits will live forever, we're all swimming to the other side

I am alone, I am searching, hungering for answers in my time
I am balanced on the brink of wisdom, I'm impatient to receive a sign
I move forward with my senses open, imperfection it be my crime
In humility I will listen, we're all swimming to the other side.

On this journey through thoughts and feelings, binding intuition, my head, my heart,
I am gathering the tools together, I'm preparing to do my part
All of those who have come before me band together and be my guide
Loving lessons that I will follow, we're all swimming to the other side.

When we get there we'll discover all of the gifts we've been given to share
Have been with us since life's beginning and we never noticed they were there
We can balance on the brink of wisdom, never recognizing that we've arrived
Loving spirits will live together, we're all swimming to the other side.
