[Poetry] I Am ... a Fisherman

I am a fisherman

I am a fisherman
I wonder how big you will be
I hear a sudden splash
I see a ripple break
I want to lure you in
I am a fisherman

I pretend that time has stopped
I feel my heart beating
I touch the line
I worry you may have gotten away
I cry out loud with joy
I am a fisherman

I understand that you want to live on
I say "Time to go back"
I dream of catching you again
I try to fish on
I hope we'll meet again
I am a fisherman
