They Say

They say you stand on a mountain peak to see beauty, To rest in a forest to rid yourself of fear, To save a creature to redeem your sins, Like so many, you did these things to feel emotion, To have something close, I never needed much, my dear, Your hand in mine, Your heart beating with mine, Linked and chained yet free, What we had was real, What we had was all I needed, You lead and I followed, But I never knew that you led your own demise, You knew that the ice was weak, You knew that it was a risk, My warmth was not worth your life! My health was not worth your care! You caused the break and you sank out of my reach, I leapt in, my heart tearing at itself, Fighting the current but the spirits that lay, Wretched you from me, The day when they found you, Was the day I crashed to earth, I still look up at the sky and wonder if you're at peace, They say you sleep in the ocean to see heaven, Can you see it? My lover?
