Letter From The Lake

Dear friend
a sigh is leaving me
I can concentrate now, finally
a statue standing on the jetty
the lake’s slow wash below the boards

that you always dreamed was waiting

They’re looking for me high and low 
But I'm nowhere to be found 
Give up the search and rescue 
You will never find me.

I'm on a quest for something that I'll never find
Where I go, pain will follow 
This lonely heart will never beat again.
