I love to go rowing a boat.
Weather is not the matter.
The day may be sunny or cloudy,
windy or even stormy.
Having you in the same boat,
I can go anywhere, everywhere.
We had a rough day at the sea,
almost dangerous to manage.
Our hearts were in touch, hands were in sync,
same spirit, and same strength.
Your encouraging words to me, mine to you,
all the way through.
We strove until the storm passed.
A day I will forever remember.
The storm brought us closer.
I love to go rowing a boat when you are with me.
