We have time

Poem by Octavian Paler (July 2, 1926 - May 7, 2007)

We have time for everything.
To sleep, to run right and left,
To regret being wrong and wrong again,
To judge others and to absolve ourselves,
We have time to read and write,
To correct what we wrote, to regret what we wrote,
We have time to do projects and not to complete them,
We have time to make illusions and embowel their ashes later.
We have time for ambitions and illnesses,
To blame our destiny and details,
We have time to look at the clouds, advertisements or an accident,
We have time to get rid of our questions,
To postpone the answers,
We have time to crush a dream and reinvent it,
We have time to make friends, to lose them,
We have time to receive lessons and forget them afterwards,
We have time to accept gifts and not to understand them.
We have time for everything.

There is no time for just a little tenderness.
When we want do that too, we die.

I learned some things in my life
Which I share with you!

I have learned that you can not make someone to love you
All you can do is to be a loved person.
The rest ... depends on the others.

I have learned that no matter how much I care
Others might not care.

I have learned that it takes years to gain confidence
And just in a few seconds you can lose it

I have learned that it does not matter WHAT you have in life
But WHO you have.

I have learned that you can handle
and use your charm about 15 minutes
After that, however, you should know something.

I have learned that you do not have to compare
with what may others better do
But with what you can do.

I have learned that it does not matter what happens to people
But it matters what I can do to solve

I have learned that in any way you would cut
Everything has two faces.

I have learned that you have to break up with your loved ones
With warm words
It might be the last time you see them

I have learned that you can continue for a long time
After you have said I can not anymore.

I have learned that heroes are the ones
who do the right thing when it needs to
No matter the consequences

I have learned that there are people who love you
But they do not know to show their love.

I have learned that when I'm angry
I have my RIGHT to be
But I have no right to be bad

I have learned that true friendship continues to exist
Even at a distance
And it is the same with true love

I have learned that if someone does not love you as you wish
It doesn't mean that he does not love you with all his heart.

I have learned that no matter how good your friend is
Yet he will hurt you from time to time
And you have to forgive him for that.

I have learned that it is not always enough
to be forgiven by others
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself

I have learned that no matter how much you suffer,
The world will not stop for your pain.

I have learned that the past and the circumstances
could influence your personality
But YOU are responsible for what you become

I have learned that if two people argue,
it doesn't mean they do not love each other
And the fact that they do not argue
does not prove that they love each other.

I have learned that sometimes you have
to put the person on first place
And not his deeds

I have learned that two people can look at the same thing
And they can see something totally different

I have learned that no matter the consequences
Those who are honest with themselves
go further in life

I have learned that your life can be changed in a few hours
By people who do not even know you.

I have learned that even when you think you have nothing to give
When a friend is calling you,
you will find the strength to help him.

I have learned that writing
Like talking
May ease the pains of soul

I have learned the people you care about most
They are taken by you too soon ...

I have learned that it's too hard to figure out
Where to draw the line between being kind,
Not to hurt people and support your opinions.

I have learned to love
So I can be loved
