Strong Ties (Drowning)

Cry me a river
And I'll fish out your fears
No matter how long it takes
I'll sift through your tears

And if while I'm out
In that deepening pool
And I see you drowning
Feeling like a fool

I'll steer my boat
However far it takes
Until I reach you my friend
No matter how high the stakes

If it came down to death
I'd abandon my boat
And swim over to you
I'd try to keep you afloat

But if even that failed
And you began to sink
I would hold my breath
And follow you to the brink

Yes cry me a river
And I'll fish out your fears
But if I can't do that
Then we'll both end our years

I really like that your poem is in the true format of a ballad with the abcb rhyme scheme. It's very well written. Nice rhyming!
