Living Life Over

If I had my life to live over… I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was strained and the sofa faded.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass stains.

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 patter if I were not there for the day.

I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, would not show soil or was guaranteed to last a life time.

There would have been more “I love you” … more “I’m sorry” … but mostly, given another shots at life.

I would seize every minute … look at it and really see it …live it … and never give it back.

  如果有来生

  如果有来生,我会少说,多听

  我会请朋友来家吃饭,即便地毯脏了,沙发褪色了。

  我会抽时间听祖父絮叨他的青年时代

  我不会因为刚刚把头发梳理定型而要求在夏天关上车窗。

  我会点燃那支雕成玫瑰状的蜡烛,而不让它在尘封中熔化。

  我会与孩子们坐在草地上,不去担心草地上的污渍。

  我会把泪水和笑声更多地留给观察人生,而不是观看电视。

  如果生病了,我会卧床休息,而不是自认没有我,地球就不转了。

  我不会买那些仅仅是实用,或者不显脏,或者保证能用一生的东西。

  我会更多地说“我爱你”……“对不起”……然而,最重要的是,如果有来生,

  我会抓住每一秒……看人生,读人生……体验人生……再也不放手。
