Little fish in the mighty river

You said,
“Follow the course of the river”

I am still a little fish
Learning to swim in the ocean of life.

I swim merrily
In the still waters at your feet.
Knowing in my heart that
When turbulence hits
I can take refuge
At the abode of my Guru.

Far from this haven
Where the river throws torrents,
Currents and whirlpools
This fish may not survive.

Until my fins grow strong
Please keep me safe and calm.
That is all I pray for.
