Swims Alone

I reach to her
out-stretched in hope
this line between safety
and a dangerous moat.

Deep emotions,
which swirls to depths
in a melancholy river
rapids and a flooded bank
a dam, which holds back
the cracks.

Sunlight to see her eyes
as I praise her prayer
but my accomplishment
means nothing -
as she doesn't understand
the cost...
when one swims alone.

A little root
embedded in the shore
this branch of life..... extends
to mean much more.
