I would have taken the time to listen more
and talk less.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching
television … and more while watching life.
I would have gone to bed when I was sick
instead of pretending the earth would go into
a holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.
There would have been more “I love you’s” …
more “I’m sorry’s.”
But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize
every minute … look at it and really see it …
live it … and never give it back.
