My Lifelong Wish

I watch them leap and twirl and dance.
 
I listen to them talk and laugh and sing.
 
I wish I could join them.
 
To swim alongside them in the endless cerulean blue.
 
To let the waters wash away my fears and limitations.
 
"It is not so hard," I hear them say.
 
"It could all be yours; if only you took the chance."
 
Why should I think them wrong?
 
Why should I wait any longer?
 
Not "It is too hard," but instead "Let us do more!"
 
Not "Someday I will," nay "Today I AM!"
 
And I will join them in the reflected sky.
 
And we will play and teach and learn.
 
And we will be as one, I and the rulers of the sea.
