Love & Lakes

It was summer
We were standing on the dock
And you told me to jump into the water
I hesitated and told you to go in first
I’ve never liked heights
You jumped
You waited for me in the lake even though the water was cold
And then I jumped in too.

That’s how it felt to love you
As though you were always some distance in front of me
Holding out your arms and saying
Come with me
It’ll be worth it.
