I stand at the edge

of the lake staring blankly past the sparkles

sunlight makes into its grave darkness


Wind passes over my face

while waves breaks over my feet

but I don’t bend or lose my gaze


The water is still now in Your space

The lake has fed but my gaze won’t break

I still see your eyes and hands


Grabbing for air grabbing for me

but I can’t swim

and this is a passing dream


I’m waiting for You to come back

to swim to the surface

I know You will


You wouldn’t leave me here alone

with no one else who loves me

You wouldn’t leave
