My Life Starts Today...


As I look at the reflection
staring back at me
I see this woman
But I wonder....
Just who is she

Who is this person
I have seen everyday
Did I really get to know her
Or did time just slip away

Have I allowed her
to really get out there and live
Or did I lock her up
then throw away the key
Did I hide her in a room
And never got to know me

Is that a stranger looking back
and wondering the same thing
Is she asking,
"Why didn't you do more?
Why didn't you go ahead
and take those chances?
That dream that was inside your heart
Why didn't you go and explore?"

Every single day
is like a new start
You can repeat
all the yesterdays over again
Or find something new
inside your heart

Only a few times
do you pass that brass ring
Then the time comes
it's not there anymore
You've missed out on everything

Now I can go out there
to face a new task
I can just sit here
and hide behind the mask

Do I make a deal
with this person in the mirror
right now
Do I tell her,
I've got some time left
I have to change somehow

So if I see something out there
that I really want
I am not going to look
the other way
I'm going to reach out
and grab that brass ring
Because the rest of my life starts
Right Here...Right Now...Today
