Your Dying Spouse 628 - The Rapids

Just need a chance to catch my breath, God, that's all I ask.

I think that now I'm in the rapids,
and full of boulders is the shore.
I must ride, and whatever happens
I want to live, now even more.
The water ran so fast behind me
that I thought it could not rise,
but I was wrong, and now every
turn brings some dread surprise.
I have to hold my breath and hope
that some calm water lies ahead
where I can let out mooring rope;
if that's not so, well, then I'm dead.
White-water God, Lord over cancer,
I trust You, and I trust Your answer.

Music from Billy Joel, with Pressure.
