If Only You Could Understand

Dear Fish,
  
I enjoy sitting here on this bank,  
watching the birds fly by,
I listen to their melodies,    
that calm these chaotic times.  
   
I want to understand emotions,  
of each of the creatures that I see,  
From the turtles on the bank,  
To the humble bumblebees.  
   
Because within them,    
You see,  
I find peace,    
within me.  
   
Sweet little fish,  
There's no need to swim away.  
I will not hurt you,    
or try to catch you in any way.  
   
A token of my love for you,  
Are in tiny nibbles that I throw,    
They are only meant to nourish,  
When landing on the looking-glass below.  
   
No line, no hook attached
to pull you from your home.  
Only appreciation remains,  
as I roam the foothills of my mind alone.  
   
If only you could understand.
