My Father's Rivers

(Emily Higgins)
MY FATHER’S RIVERS

My father’s rivers flow through time
And cut through these hills that I still climb
I feel his presence everywhere
But most when spring is in the air

The Current takes me down his roads
Old, fallen trees, under wings of gold
Around each bend sparks a memory
Another branch on father’s tree

CHORUS:
And my father’s rivers know
My father’s rivers have seen
That I feel most at home
When I’m living days like these
When the day comes to and end
And the light is growing dim
I will feel better
‘Cause I spent that time with him.

Sweet William blooms along the shore
A purple frame around father’s door
The April breeze gives me a chill
As I wave goodbye and climb the hill

And my father’s rivers know
My father’s rivers have seen
That I feel most at home
When I’m living days like these
When the day comes to and end
And the light is growing dim
I will feel better
‘Cause I spent that time with him.

I will feel better
‘Cause I spent that time with him.
