If for just an instant God would forget that I am but a puppet of time and would bestow
upon me the gift of a chunk of life., I would use that time fully.
Probably, I wouldn’t say all that I think but I would definitely think about all that I say.
I would give value to things not because of what they are worth but because of what they mean.
I would sleep very little but I would dream more. I understand that for every minute we close our eyes
we lose sixty seconds of light.
I would walk while others stop, wake up while others still sleep.
If God would give me a chunk of life, I would dress modestly, lay face up to the sun uncovering
not just my body but also my soul.
To men I would show how wrong they are in thinking they stop falling in love when the grow old
without knowing that they grow old when they quit falling in love.
To a kid I would give wings but let him learn to fly on his own.
To old folks I would share that Death doesn’t arrive with old age but with abandonment.
So much I have learned from men.
I have learned that everyone wants to live a top the mountain not knowing that true happiness
comes in the challenge of the climb.
I have learned that when a newborn squeezes with his tiny hand his father’s finger
he is trapped forever.
I have learned that a man only has the right to look down on another man when he is
helping him stand up again.
It has been so many things I have learned from all of you but really it will not be of much
use because when I am placed in that big suitcase I will already be dying.
Try to say always what you feel and do always what you feel deep inside your heart.
If I knew that today would be the last time that I will see you sleep, I would embrace you tightly
and pray to God to allow me and be the guardian of your soul.
If I knew this would be the last minutes I would see you I would tell you ” I Love You”
And don’t assume foolishly that you knew already.
There is always another tomorrow and life gives us another chance to mend things.
But if I am wrong and today is all we have left I would like to tell you “I Love You and I will never forget you”.
Tomorrow is not assured to anyone, old, young. Today could be the last time you see those you love.
Because of that: Wait no more. Do it today because if tomorrow never comes you surely will lament
the day that you did not take the time for a smile, an embrace, a kiss, the day when you were so busy to grant one last wish.
Keep those you love close to you, tell them to their ear how much you need them. Love them and treat them well.
Take time to say “I am sorry”, “Forgive me”, “Please”, “Thanks” and all the loving words that you know.
No one will ever remember you for your secret noble thoughts. Ask God the strength and wisdom to express them.
finally, Show your friends and loved ones just how much they matter to you.
