Skipping Stones

Those were the long years

We dog-eared the pages

Got caught in the folds


And these can be hard times

So I rewind the present

Relive it, augment it

Be all of me now


The rain smooths the rocks

I throw out my thoughts:


They dance on the water

It’s gonna be fine


They speed up, they slow down

It’s gonna be fine


Breathe me in, breathe you out

It’s gonna be fine
