Avem timp --- Octavian Paler

Avem timp pentru toate.
Sa dormim, sa alergam in dreapta si-n stanga,
sa regretam c-am gresit si sa gresim din nou,
sa-i judecam pe altii si sa ne absolvim pe noi
avem timp sa citim si sa scriem,
sa corectam ce-am scris, sa regretam ce-am
avem timp sa facem proiecte si sa nu le
avem timp sa ne facem iluzii si sa rascolim prin
cenusa lor mai tarziu.
Avem timp pentru ambitii si boli,
sa invinovatim destinul si amanuntele,
avem timp sa privim norii, reclamele sau un
accident oarecare,
avem timp sa ne-alungam intrebarile, sa
amanam raspunsurile,
avem timp sa sfaramam un vis si sa-l
avem timp sa ne facem prieteni, sa-i pierdem,
avem timp sa primim lectii si sa le uitam dupa-aceea,
avem timp sa primim daruri si sa nu le-ntelegem.
Avem timp pentru toate.
Nu e timp doar pentru putina tandrete.
Cand sa facem si asta – murim.
Am invatat unele lucruri in viata pe care vi le
impartasesc si voua!!
Am invatat ca nu poti face pe cineva sa te
Tot ce poti face este sa fii o persoana iubita.
Restul… depinde de ceilalti.
Am invatat ca oricat mi-ar pasa mie,
Altora s-a putea sa nu le pese.
Am invatat ca dureaza ani sa castigi incredere
Si ca doar in cateva secunde poti sa o pierzi.
Am invatat ca nu conteaza CE ai in viata
Ci pe CINE ai.
Am invatat ca te descurci si ti-e de folos farmecul
cca 15 minute;
Dupa aceea, insa, ar fi bine sa stii ceva.
Am invatat ca nu trebuie sa te compari cu ceea
ce pot altii mai bine sa faca,
Ci cu ceea ce poti tu sa faci;
Am invatat ca nu conteaza ce li se intampla
Ci conteaza ceea ce pot eu sa fac pentru a
Am invatat ca oricum ai taia,
Orice lucru are doua fete;
Am invatat ca trebuie sa te desparti de cei dragi
cu cuvinte calde;
S-ar putea sa fie ultima oara cand ii vezi;
Am invatat ca poti continua inca mult timp
Dupa ce ai spus ca nu mai poti;
Am invatat ca eroi sunt cei care fac ce trebuie, cand trebuie,
Indiferent de consecinte;
Am invatat ca sunt oameni care te iubesc,
Dar nu stiu s-o arate;
Am invatat ca atunci cand sunt suparat am
DREPTUL sa fiu suparat,
Dar nu am dreptul sa fiu si rau;
Am invatat ca prietenia adevarata continua sa
existe chiar si la distanta,
Iar asta e valabil si pentru iubirea adevarata.
Am invatat ca, daca cineva nu te iubeste cum ai
vrea tu,
Nu inseamna ca nu te iubeste din tot sufletul.
Am invatat ca, indiferent cat de bun iti este un
Oricum te va rani din cand in cand,
Iar tu trebuie sa-l ierti pentru asta.
Am invatat ca nu este intotdeauna de ajuns sa fii
iertat de altii;
Cateodata trebuie sa inveti sa te ierti pe tine
Am invatat ca, indifferent de cat de mult suferi,
Lumea nu se va opri in loc pentru durerea ta.
Am invatat ca trecutul si circumstantele ti-ar
putea influenta
Dar ca TU esti responsabil pentru ceea ce devii;
Am invatat ca daca doi oameni se cearta, nu
Inseamna ca nu se iubesc
Si nici faptul ca nu se cearta nu dovedeste ca se
Am invatat ca uneori trebuie sa pui persoana pe
primul loc
Si nu faptele sale;
Am invatat ca doi oameni pot privi acelasi lucru
Si pot vedea ceva total diferit;
Am invatat ca, indiferent de consecinte,
Cei care sunt cinstiti cu ei insisi ajung mai
departe in viata;
Am invatat ca viata iti poate fi schimbata in
cateva ore
De catre oameni care nici nu te cunosc.
Am invatat ca si atunci cand crezi ca nu mai ai nimic de dat,
Cand te striga un prieten, vei gasi puterea de a-l
Am invatat ca scrisul, ca si vorbitul,
Poate linisti durerile sufletesti;
Am invatat ca oamenii la care tii cel mai mult
Iti sunt luati prea repede…
Am invatat ca este prea greu sa-ti dai seama
Unde sa tragi linie intre a fi amabil, a nu rani
oamenii si a-ti sustine parerile.
Am invatat sa iubesc
Ca sa pot sa fiu iubit.

We have time for everything:
to sleep, to run from one place to another,
to regret having mistaken and to mistake again,
to judge the others and to forgive
we have time for reading and writing,
for making corrections to our texts, to regret ever having
we have time to make projects and never
respect them,
we have time to make illusions and gamble
through their ashes later on.
We have time for ambitions and illnesses,
to blame it all on ambitions and details,
we have time to watch the clouds, advertisements or
some ordinary accident,
we have time to chase our wonders away
and to postpone the answers,
we have time to break a dream to pieces and then
to reinvent it,
we have time to make friends, lose them,
we have time to learn our lessons and then
forget them quickly afterwards,
we have time to be given gifts and not understand them.
We have time for them all.
But there is no time for just a drop of tenderness.
When we are about to get to that too – we die.
I have learned some things during my lifetime,
experiences that I am now sharing with you!!
I have learned that you cannot make somebody
love you;
All you can do is be the beloved one.
Everything else… depends on the others.
I have learned that, no matter how much I might care,
Others might not care at all.
I have learned that it could take years to earn somebody’s confidence
And only a few seconds to lose it.,
I have learned that it is not WHAT you have in life,
But WHO is there for you to have.
I have learned that charms could be of use for only
About 15 minutes,
Afterwards, nevertheless, you had better know something.
I have learned that you should never compare yourself
to what others can do better than you,
but you what you can do yourself;
I have learned that what happens to the others is not as import as
what I can do to help;
I have learned that in whatever you might cut things,
They will always turn out to have two sides;
I have learned that when you have to depart from your dearest ones,
you should do it with the warmest words;
It could be the last time you see them.
I have learned that you could carry on for a long time
After stating you cannot take it anylonger;
I have learned that heroes are those who do what is right,
when the ought to,
regardless of the consequences;
I have that there are people who love you
But do not know how to show it;
I have learned that when I am upset I have
the RIGHT to be so
But I do not have the right to be mean as well;
I have learned that true friendship continues
to exist even when great distances are involved
And that goes for true love too.
I have learned that, if somebody does not love you
the way you might want to be loved,
It does not mean they do not love you with all their heart.
I have learned that no matter how good a friend might be to you,
They will inevitably hurt you from time to time
And you will have to forgive;
I have learned that it is not always enough to be
forgiven by others,
Sometimes you must learn how to forgive
your own self;
I have learned that, regardless of how much you might suffer,
The world will never cease running because of your pain.
I have learned that the past and circumstances
could alter your
But it is certainly YOU to be held responsible for what you become;
I have learned that, if two people argue, it does not mean
they do not love each other,
As well as their not arguing would not prove that they subsequently
are in love.
I have learned that you should sometimes put the person
in the first place
And not their deeds;
I have learned that two persons could be watching the very same thing
And perceive two totally different meanings;
I have learned that, in spite of any consequences,
Those who are fair and honest with themselves
reach higher peaks in life;
I have learned that one’s life could be changed
in only a few hours’ time
By people who might have never even known them;
I have learned that when you believe there is
nothing more you could offer,
You will always find the strength to help a friend
who in need.
I have learned that writing,
Just like speaking,
Could soothe your inner pain.
I have learned that the ones you hold dearest
Are taken away from you far too soon…
I have learned that it is far too difficult to realize
Where to draw the borders between kindness, not hurting the others
and firmly sustaining your ideas.
I have learned to love
In order to be loved in my turn.
