If I Had My Life To Live Over

Author: Nadine Stair, Aged 85, Kentucky, USA

back

If I had my life to live over
I'd dare to make more mistakes next time
I'd relax. I would limber up. I'd be sillier
than I have been on this trip. I would take fewer
things seriously. I would take more choices
I would take more trips. I would climb more
mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat
more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps
have more actual troubles, but have fewer
imaginary ones.

You see I'm one of those people who live,
sensibly and sanely, hour after hour, day after
day. Oh, I've had my moments and if I had it
to do over again, I'd have more of them. In
fact, I'd try to have nothing else. Just moments,
one after another, instead of living so many years
ahead of each day. I've been one of those persons
who never goes anywhere without a thermometer,
hot water bottle, a raincoat and a parachute.
If I had to do it all again I would travel lighter
than I have.

If I had my life to live over again, I would start
barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way
later in the fall. I would go to more dances.
I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick

more daisies.
