If I Had My Life To Live Over

If I had my life to live over 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.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner, even if the carpet was stained or the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the “ good living” room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fire place.
I would have taken time to listen to my Grandfather ramble on about his youth.
I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.
