The Water’s Edge

If souls wander after departing this earth
      with all life's limitations
      unanswered questions
      fielding too many 'whys'
they can be found at the water's edge
where calming springs lay hidden and
continuous movement brings repose -
     comfort to those still living
     those searching for wisdom, 
     clues to the meaning of life.
If souls wander after departing this earth
cling to certainty there's comforting colloquy
      echos in thought,
      prayers with truth
to those sitting alongside
the water's edge, souls intact,
waiting for the touch of God - 
     guardian undisturbed, forever tranquil
