How many more times?

How many more times?

How many more times will you watch the sunrise, the sunset and stars fill the western sky?

How many more times will you celebrate holidays, birthdays and anniversaries surrounded by those you love?

How many more times will you go on vacation, do something new or visit a favorite place?

How many more times will you talk with an old friend, make a new one and laugh until you cry?

How many more times will you wake up to the smell of bacon and enjoy a stack of buttermilk pancakes as you push your fork into a perfectly fried egg?

How many more times will you go to work, play in a park or attend one of your favorite pastimes?

How many more times will you hear a sparrow sing, a cricket chirp and a baby burp?

How many more times will you hear you mother’s voice, your daddy snore or your siblings’ latest news?

How many more times will you wish you would’ve, known you could’ve and felt you should’ve?

How many more times is hard to determine. So, dance when you can, laugh without reserve and live without regrets, for it is then that how many times will be just almost, more than enough times.
