Stand up

I dove in to the deep end
Knowing I couldn't swim
Drowning and reaching out for you
Like I tend to do in these situations
Understanding that you would
Happily
Sit and watch me drown 
Having the power to save me 
But choosing not to
I knew this and yet 
I drove to the lake with you
And dove in
With the idea or assumption or hope
That we would swim together
As consciousness leave me
And I fade to the after life
I remember I'm bigger than this
And stand up
