REFLECTIONS

by Milton Lopez Delgado
(Covington Township Pennsylvania)

If only I had this life to live over again,

oh the changes I would have made.

I would have gone sleigh riding on the winters' snow,
marveled at the sight of a rainbow...
gazed at a sunset across a meadow.
It doesn't seem so very long ago.
Forgive me Lord! I just did not know!

If only I had my life to live over again,
oh the changes I would have made.

I would have hiked through a forest and hugged a tree,
spent more time with friends and family...
learned the lesson of the honeybee.
To be unaware is such a tragedy!
Unopened eyes cannot see!

If I could only live my life over again,
oh the changes I would make.

I would have said and done things that would have carried on
and endured after I was gone...
been more thankful for the gift of each new dawn,
awakened to why I was born...
regrets forever I will mourn.

If I had this life to live over again,
oh the different choices I would have made.

I would have set my mind on things above...
listened to the song of a turtledove...
been more aware of what life is made of.
Am I the hand and God the glove?

My eyes are closing.
My head is spinning!
Something is happening to me?
There's this bright light I see!
I'm flying to another galaxy.
I feel such joy and tranquility.
