The Slippery Fish of Love

Waiting in the river of life for love to swim by

I sit in the river of life
Waiting for the slippery fish of love
To swim by
And when I see it approach
I grab it
I hold on tight
But the slippery fish of love wiggles out
It pops out of my grasp
And I watch as it swiftly swims away
