    In the core of,
    In the very midst of,
    The lake.
    I was surrounded,
    And it was all that I could see,
    For miles, for days.
    I felt like succumbing,
    I wanted to give in,
    I didn’t want to be living,
    And enduring the toss and turns,
    Of the violent waves as the water churned.
    Then from afar I spotted an assist,
    And I was desperate, I couldn’t resist.
    With everything that I had left in me,
    I struggled over to it, hoping that it would set me free.
    Trying to free myself from the clutches of the lake,
    I pulled on a bough, not knowing how much it could take.
    And then suddenly a chilling sound as it began to break.
    It gave way, and I had no choice but to fall back into the blue.
    So once again, I have been enveloped, encased, and engulfed,
    In the lake of love, true blue.
    Because the bough couldn’t support my love for you.

    This so sweet!

    What a wonderful way to say...Love is like
    a current that takes you over and pulls you
    under if that "BOUGH" is not strong enoug!
    Love the imagery here...
    Blessings On Your House! :peace:
