Η καλύβα του Παππού: 21 Μαϊ 2008

21 Μαΐ 2008

I wish I’d been another man,

I wish I 'd told less lies,

I wish that I could change my life,

But pay the smallest price.


I wish a day would dawn for me

When I’d salute the light,

With no remorse inside my heart,

Nor malice, fear or fright.


I wish I could enjoy life more,

I wish that I could pray,

I wish I had a warmer heart,

And gentler things to say.


I wish that I could see again

The people I loved most,

And see in them, with clearer eyes,

The hidden truths I’ve lost.


I wish that I would meet you again

And touch you, before long.

I wish we’d speak more truthfully

And share a nicer song.


I wish I’d been a humble man,

Compassionate and wise,

I wish I could discern God’s hand

Above our wretched lives.


But such a man

I am not.
