Helpless

I looked into his eyes
So brown and sad
Like two fallen tree branches
Disconnected from their home
Floating downstream

All that my blue eyes could do
Was follow them
as they headed toward a waterfall

Eyes so engaging
So transparent
So helpless

My arms wanted to reach out
And bring him back to land
They considered this for a moment
Paused at half the distance
But the weight of my worry
Might have made him sink
Perhaps it would sink us both

So I just hoped
For a current to change its course
and someday lead him home again
All I could do was hope
