'My Way'


 'My Way'
 
And now, the end is near;
and so I face the final curtain.
my friend, I'll say it clear,
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.
 
 
I've lived a life that's full.
I've traveled each and ev'ry highway;
but more, much more tan this,
I did it my way.
 

Regrets, I've had a few;
but then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
and saw it through without exemption.

 

I planned each charted course;
each careful step along the byway,
but more, much more than this,
I did it my way.
 

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
when I bit off more tan I could chew.
but through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
and did it my way.
 

I've loved, I ve laughed and cried.
I've had my fill; my share of losing.
and now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.
 
 
To think I did all that;
and may I say - not in a shy way;
'no, oh no not me,
I did it my way'.
 

For what is a man, what has he got?
if not himself, then he has naught.
to say the things he truly feels;
and not the words of one who kneels.
the record shows I took the blows -
and did it my way!

RISOTERAPIA: ANTONIO LÓPEZ.

ANTONIO LÓPEZ GARCÍA,
6-I-1936, Tomelloso, España. Pintor y escultor.
Hastiada de ver día tras día miradas adustas y recelosas, he decidido crear la sección 'Risoterapia'. Sé que la vida nos golpea a veces con tanta saña que resulta imposible esbozar siquiera una sonrisa. Pero cuando las cosas mejoran conviene recordar que un gesto amable es una buena tarjeta de visita. Incluso, para los necios que confunden la amabilidad con la falta de carácter.
