poemwrig1 The Deep End

The Deep End
by Wim Wright


Move your feet
Like you’re riding a bicycle.
That’s it
You’re doing great!

Don’t let go!

I won’t let go
Till you’re ready.
Look at you
You’re swimming!

I’m not really swimming.
You’re holding me up.

I’m not holding you up.
I’m just holding your hand.
If I let go
You’d see.

I’m scared.

That’s alright
I’m here.
I won’t let you drown.

Even if you let go?

Even if I let go
I’m still here.
I won’t let you drown.
