Like a dragon

And a mermaid

I dwell in water

And you breathe fire

If you try and reach me,

You'll be extinguished

And if I try and reach you

I'll dehydrate

And I'll die.

We're far apart

And yet we still need each other

I love you

And always will

But I can't be with you

For all I can have

Is water

And water would kill you

And without water,

I am nothing

But a fish

Out of water

And you

Need your fire

For without it, you would die

If only we could be together.

But we can't

And that's how life works

You can't always have your way

But you can dream

Just don't dwell on those dreams forever

Someday

You'll have to let it go.
