Still

I go to the water’s edge and stand alone,
Waiting to see a wave, a sign of life below,
But still, still, still is the water’s cry.

Try as I may to peer into the black water’s deeps
Nothing breaks the mirror’s scene of me bent like these trees,
And still, still, still is the water’s cry.

I jump into the water, ripples to make,
But drowning, buried underneath, all looks the same.
So still, still, still is the water’s cry.

I go to the Lord and pray the water will move.
He says stillness, black and glassy tells the truth, so there’s nothing left to do,
But be still.
