River Styx

I've driven over the River Styx
whose waters were flowing fast
I've been to the Moon, imagining
in visions that did not last...

I've fallen in love so many times
I'll never fall out again
now I am living on the west coast
mountains with forests and rain...

time's speeding up the older I get
the seasons hurry by
while every day the first thing I do
is look into the sky...

the planet I'm on keeps spinning around
locked in a cosmic embrace
with Moon and Sun and what's in-between
while moving through endless space...

then I look in, I sit and begin,
meditation is my fix,
I am beside a fast flowing stream,
I'm back by the River Styx...
