Flow Softly

Flow softly sweet river of time
Flow gently o’er rapids ahead
Run easy for all of these children of mine
Asleep and like you in their bed

They dream as they sleep by the fire
Their future uncertain but bright
I dream of their dreams, deeper and higher
As I stare at the river tonight

And if, should the rapids o’ertake  them,
You find I’m not there at the stern
Please cushion their blows, while letting them go
And help them to live and to learn

Flow softly sweet river of time
Flow gently o’er rapids ahead
Run easy for all of these children of mine
Asleep and like you in your bed
