I changed my life today
Today, I changed my life
I bought a kayak for two
I'm no longer standing on the shore
watching beautiful sunsets
waiting for the tide to come in
dangling my feet over the pier
I've decided to get in the water
and row to that distant shore
play in the water
jump in if I feel like it
I told him of my plans
and he smiled
"when are we going?" he asked
and I realized
I didn't have to go alone
I wanted someone to share the journey.
I wanted to laugh in the sunshine
launch from anywhere
and just paddle off into the river
I called my friend, I was so happy
she said "I've got some too, let's make a party!"
I couldn't contain my joy!
This one decision had opened up my world.
I was going to experience a new side of my life
just because I opened myself up
and decided not to be a spectator anymore.
I just can't wait
to get out on the water
in the sun
with my friends and my beau
in my kayak.
