Be Ready to Sail
by Claire Lynch



In a moment of reflection,
looking back upon my life.
There were times I changed direction,
letting fortune pass me by.
There were seldom second chances,
and nothing so profound
as a lesson learned the hard way,
that I'll use next time around.

Be ready to sail.
When a good wind blows your way,
be ready to sail.
Cast your fate upon the water,
catch a big wave by the tail.
And when a good wind blows your way,
be ready to sail.

There are those whose hearts are restless,
for a new and different shore.
Filled with second guesses,
the never climb on board.
While those with faith to guide them
leave all their fears behind,
chasing down their destination over on the other side.

Be ready to sail.
When a good wind blows your way,
be ready to sail.
Cast your fate upon the water,
catch a big wave by the tail.
And when a good wind blows your way,
be ready to sail.

Be ready to sail.
When a good wind blows your way,
be ready to sail.
Cast your fate upon the water,
catch a big wave by the tail.
And when a good wind blows your way,
be ready to sail.
