SAILING - 2000

The first time a sea wind blew in my hair
Raising the main on my first solo sail
Impassioned I knew I had not a care
A life with the sea would be my swan song

David and I sought a liveaboard yacht
Future comfort, style, majestic in grace
Affordable, for wealthy we are not
Our future seeking the very next place

Retiring is looming; we're getting old
Wanting a project so we could be close
Finding a trawler we made an offer
Lower by far than the price was at most

Dreams of a lifetime, answers to prayer
We're not aboard yet but we're nearly there
