Poetry

The Teammate

“I love you”, I said.

“Come in”, she replied,
“The water is warm.”

“But I have not swam in years”. I balked,
And the waters are deeper than I’ve known.”

“No worries, my friend
All you need is to trust.”

“Forgive me, but what if my trust is misplaced?”

“It is not me you must think of,
But yourself.
It is not the sky that a bird trusts,
But his own wings.”

“What if I cannot keep up with you?”

“Love is patient”, she replied,
“Love is teamwork.  In the end,
Love always comes down to teamwork.”
