Over The Lake

you traveled down
to the side of the lake
to meet a girl
you once saw there
under the surface

you said to me
I’m thinking
love
you said to me
I’m thinking
marriage
down on the dock
over the water

i said to you
no
that was
a reflection
of a girl

the jealous lake
stole her image
from above
you were only looking in
to its heart

but you traveled down
to the side of the lake
but try as you might
you couldn’t find her

I traveled down
to the side of the lake
to meet you
at once I saw you there
under the surface

years later
at my marriage
down on the dock
over the water
I couldn’t look down.
