       SWIMMING WITH THE DOLPHINS

 

I have dreamt of swimming with the dolphins,
but a tiger shark lurks behind. 

He has followed me most of my life, not allowing me to unwind 

\But still I dream of that swim out in the ocean blue 
If I can only shake that shark, I would have the courage to “do” 

\The chance to swim with these warriors comes only at a certain time 
Will I be able to capture their energy and leave that shark behind? 

\I’ve mustered up the courage and my chance has finally come 
To seize this opportunity . . . to swim with them as one 

\Patience is what I’m told, persistence is what I hear 
In a race to catch the dolphins before that shark comes near 

\With all my might and strength I race to reach my goal 
But I suddenly realize that the dolphins have control 

\So I stopped and grounded, seeing patience as the key 
And before I realized it, the dolphins were coming to me 

\So I swam with the dolphins, with all the love that I could find 
Soon to discover that the tiger shark was only in my mind.
