I have lived with you for all of my life,
but I have never known what you are.
I wish I had understood you better,
and known what you could inspire.
I lived my life through my heart when young,
without a thought.
Now, as life draws to a close I wish your advice,
I had sought.
Would I have changed, would I have been the same,
If I had listened well, and not been so vain?
I had no reason to regret that life, that has been so full and free,
but as we come to our shared end, this question puzzles me.
Would it be true if I was to say that somewhere along,
I lost my way?
If I was given a second chance would I give you more,
than just a glance?
I doubt it somehow,
as you must too,
because I am me and you are you!
I am the body,
no more than that.
You are the brain
and there is much more in that.
