the girl
i love
tries desperately
to stay
above water
not to drown
in the choppy river

i want
more than anything
to rescue her
from the rough water
which threatens
to engulf her
but i do not know how

the only thing
i can do
is to swim out to her
i must try to hold on to her
and keep her afloat

i grab her hand
i scream at her
hold on!
don’t give up!
but i feel her fingers
