If I could start over my life,
I would make more mistakes in the new one.
Not trying to be perfect, I would just lie on my back.
I would be happy, more than I ever was in my first try.
There would be very few things
That I would do seriously.
Cleanliness would never be a problem.
I would take more risks.
I would travel more.
I would watch the sunrise more often,
I would climb mountains and swim in rivers and
I would go see places I didn't see.
I would eat more ice cream and less lime beans.
I would have real troubles, instead of the imaginary ones.
I used to be striving for efficiency at every moment of my life.
If I could start over, I would only have happy moments.
Do you realize that this is what life is all about?
Moments, only moments. Seize the moment.
I used to go nowhere without water, umbrella and parachutes with me.
If I could start over, I would carry nothing.
If I could start over,
I would throw away my shoes in the Spring
And I would walk barefoot until the end of Fall.
I would discover hidden paths, enjoy the sun,
And play with the kids.
If I had the chance...
But I am 85 and I know... I am dying...
