Hayatinizin farkinda olmadiginiz degerini kaybetmeden okumanizi tavsiye ediyorum...
HAYATIMI YENIDEN YASAYABILSEYDIM
Evimin halilari lekeli
Mobilyalarimin dosemesi solmus ta olsa
Hic umursamadan arkadaslarimi evime davet ederdim.
"KAPALI" misafir odasinda Patlamis misir yer
Evim kirlenecek diye somineyi yakmaktan cekinmezdim.
Buyuk bir sabirla Dedemin genclik hikayelerini dinlerdim.
Yaz gununde arabanin camlarini kapatmak icin israr etmezdim.
Kuaforden yeni ciktigim sacim bozulacak diye
Kendiliginden erimeden once, gul seklinde yontardim
Yakmaya kiyamadigim o pembe mumu.
Kiyafetim cimen lekesi olacak diye kaygilanmadan
Cocularimla sere serpile cimlere uzanirdim.
Televizyon seyrederken daha az guler ve aglar.
Gercek hayati seyrederken daha cok guler ve aglardim.
Ayakta olmazsam hicbirsey yolunda gitmeyecek
Gunumu yatakta gecirirdim hasta oldugum gunler.
Hamileligimin bir an once sona ermesini dilemez,
Icimde buyuyen "hayret" Allah'in mucizesini desteklemekte
Omrumde elime gecen tek sans diye dusunerek,
Hamileligimin her gununu sevgi ve sefkat dolu geciriridim.
Cocuklarim beni ansizin coskuyla optuklerinde
" Sonra. Simdi yemek zamani ellerinizi yikayin."
Hayatimda daha cok
"SENI SEVIYORUM" ve " OZUR DILERIM"
FAKAT HERSEYDEN ONCE
HAYATIMI TEKRAR YASAMA SANSI VERILDIGI ICIN
HER ANINA SIKICA SARILIR
HER INCE AYRINTINSINI DETAYLARI ILE GORMEYE CALISIR
HER INCE AYRINTISI ILE YASAR
BIR ANINI BILE ELIMDEN BIRAKMAZDIM.

"IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER
I would have invited friends over to
dinner even if the carpet was
stained and 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 fireplace.
I would have taken the time to
listen to my grandfather ramble
about his youth.
I would never have insisted the car
windows be rolled up on a
summer day because my hair had just
been teased and sprayed.
I would have burned the pink candle
sculpted like a rose before it
melted in storage.
I would have sat on the lawn with my
children and not worried
about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less
while watching television and
more while watching life.
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
I would never have bought anything
just because it was practical,
wouldn't show soil or was guaranteed
to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months
of pregnancy, I'd have
cherished every moment realizing
that the wonderment growing inside
me was the only chance in life to
assist God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously,
I would never have said,
"Later. Now go get washed up for dinner."
There would have been more "I love you's"
and more "I'm sorry's"
...but mostly, given another shot
at life, I would seize every
minute.....look at it and really see
it ... live it ... and never give it back. "
