Swimming to the Other Side
by Pat Humphries

We are living 'neath the great Big Dipper
We are washed by the very same rain
We are swimming in the stream together
Some in power and some in pain
We can worship this ground we walk on
Cherishing the beings that we live beside
Loving spirits will live forever
We're all swimming to the other side.

I am alone and I am searching, hungering for answers in my time
I am balanced at the brink of wisdom, I'm impatient to receive a sign
I move forward with my senses open, imperfection be my pride
In humility I will listen, we're all swimming to the other side

On this journey of thoughts and feelings, binding intuition: my head, my heart
I am gathering the tools together, I'm preparing to do my part
All of those who have come before me band together to be my guides
Loving lessons that I will follow, we're all swimming to the other side

When we get there we'll discover all of the gifts we've been given to share
Have been with us since life's beginning and we never noticed they were there
We can balance at the brink of wisdom, never recognizing that we've arrived
Loving spirits will live together, we're all swimming to the other side
