If I had a second chance

If I had a Second Chance

If I had a second chance
I'd stop looking and start seeing
If I had a second chance
I'd treat everyone as a human being

I'd stop talking and start giving
Stop hiding and start living
I'd do more listening and a lot less talking
Enjoy the world and do more walking

If I had a second chance
I'd take my eyes off my watch
And watch with my eyes
To notice the trees and the beautiful sky

I'd stop criticizing and show more love
Be less forgetful to give thanks to the One above
I'd be less angry and give up my pride
And share with the world what I have inside

I'd stop hating and be more kind
And give a little more of my precious time
I'd give more encouragement and a lot more praise
And do a lot less judging, for I too have lost my way

I'd get my priorities in order and straight
Better now than never... I'm just a little late
I'd stop chasing hopelessly after the wind
From this point on, a new I begin

I'd find my way back to GOD'S Grace
And hope to never again lose my place
I'd change my life and make a stance
Oh, GOD, what I wouldn't give for a second chance

It's not the destination that counts in life
But the journey with the people we love
That's all that really matters...

Such a simple truth so easily forgotten...
