POEM - I'd pick more daisies[/h][/TD]

[TD=width: 600, align: left] If I had my life to live over again, I'd not be afraid of more mistakes, next time.

In fact, I'd relax a lot more.

I'd limber up, I'd be sillier than I had been on this trip.

In fact I know very few things that I'd take so seriously.

I'd take more chances; I'd take more trips, I'd climb more mountains.

I'd go more places than I'd ever been before

I'd have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones.

You see I was one of those people that lived prophylactically and sanely and sensibly hour after hour, day after day.

Oh I've had my moments and if I had to live all over again I'd try to have more of those moments.

In fact I would try to have nothing else but wonderful moments, side by side by side, instead of living so many years ahead of my time.

I was one of those people who never went anywhere without a thermometer, a hot-water bottle, a gargle, a raincoat and a parachute.

If I had it to do all over again, I'd travel lighter next time.

If I had my life to live over again, I'd play with more children.

I'd pick more daisies.

I'd love more.

If I had my life to live over again.

But you see I don't.

We're given only one.

This was first published in the Reader's Digest, October 1953 issue with the title "I'd pick more daisies", where it was attributed to Don Herold (1889-1966). Another version has been attributed to Nadine Stair.
