With my hands on your shoulders
I can tread water for days
Kidding myself – I can float 
I don’t dependent on you to breath
You tire of my closeness
And dive down deep to swim
Finding new clear waters
While I flounder behind alone 
I struggle to breath 
Hardly afloat
Swallowing bitter salt water
Crying to you “come back”
You return – oh my hero
And close you stay again
I kid myself – I can float
I don’t need you to breath
Floating on false security
Pretending you won’t dive again
