Lifeguard

I feel like a lifeguard, watching the vulnerable swimmers below. When one screams, I jump in to save them. I'm usually the one in the big chair, watching and waiting.   But who will save the lifeguard if she begins to drown? Right now, I stay well afloat on my own, ready to keep anyone else from drowning, and teaching them to swim on their own. Dear God, please do not let me drown.
