LIVE AGAIN
by Hebe Brooks

If I could live again,

My father used to say,

With the knowledge in my brain retained,

I will be able to tamper the pain

Since it almost always goes away.

If the clock could turn back

To younger years of my past,

When my spirit was uncertain but fun,

I will eagerly smile, cry, or laugh

Since the experiences pass so fast.

If one hour is all I had,

Knowing that each soul owns a part

In the comedy of life,

I won’t be wasteful with my art

Since it was given to play a part.

If I had the chance to live again

With my role rehearsed at least once,

I would buy oils on that first day,

And add more red to my paints

To love life with passion once again.
