I can’t paddle your canoe

February 17, 2018

As one goes through life one learns that if you don’t paddle your own canoe, you don’t move.
Katherine Hepburn

Life keeps
Coming at you
And you wonder
What to do
You know
I wanna help
And I’m always
Here for you
But I can’t paddle
Your canoe

I can sit
And I can listen
Till morning’s
Wet with dew
I can even talk
If you want
My point of view
But I can’t paddle
Your canoe

I can love you
I can feed you
Hold your hand
And tie your shoe
I hope you
Always know
I got a million
Hugs for you
But I can’t paddle
Your canoe
