If I Had My Life To Live Over

by Nadine Stair

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 would be siller than I have been on this trip.
I would take fewer things seriously.
I would take more chances.
I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers.
I would eat more ice cream and less beans...
If I had to do it again,
I would travel lighter than I have...
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.
