The water rushes past like a storm had just struck.
The swirling and churning whisks away all my luck.
The frigid air cripples the flow.
Icicles tumble to the rocks below.
They shatter and break like my heart did that day.
When you confessed to me you could not stay.
The water is freezing and my ankles are numb.
But deeper into the water I run.
Running closer, or maybe away.
I have made up my mind on this last day.
I will jump and plunge into the waters below.
The pain in my heart you will never know.
At the edge the water urges me forward.
A helping hand pushing me toward,
The happiness I seek and the peace of mind.
I pray the water is forgiving and kind.
The numbness subsides to a dull ache.
As the water swirls and forces awake,
the part of my brain that misses you most.
I sit in the water and begin to coast.
Closer to the edge, faster and faster.
What happens next, soon won’t matter.
If my body is frozen, bruised or broken.
The real life inside me will soon be awoken.
The life that is yours, I promised that day.
“Till’ death do we part” we would always say.
But if you die, then I, are we brought back together?
Like our souls are attached by a tether.
In just moments we will know as my body is flung
off the edge, for a moment I hung.
Suspended in air weightless and free
Until the rush of the water caught up with me.
It forced me down fast to the pool below.
The rocks did nothing to soften the blow.
The water pushed me down, deeper it drove.
I thought about swimming for the water above.
But I would not betray the promise I had made.
That after you were gone I would find you some day.
On the other side no matter how far, how vast.
I would come for you like I had done in the past.
Through the depths of heaven and hell I would search
To find you. To save you and return back to earth.
Born again to live out our days
Happy, in love till’ again we part ways.
So today is the day my search begins.
As always, we are both forgiven our sins.
I slip away from this life and leave it behind.
To search for the love I always find.
The water is not cold anymore. The frost has passed.
I can feel the warmth and I am home at last.
To begin the journey I have made many times.
As I open my eyes I am completely surprised.
There will be no hike, trek or journey
For your beautiful image is standing before me.
You knew I was coming and decided to wait.
This is our life, our love and our fate.
