I'd Like To Do It Over

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






I'd like to do it over. I'd like to try again.
I'd like to be in clover.
This time I'd like the win.
I'd like to run the gamut. I'd like to have a ball.
I'd like to amass clear-cut.
This time I'd like the haul.
I'd like to throw a party. I'd like to shadow dance.
I'd like to become hardy.
This time I'd like the chance.
I'd like to find my lost prime. I'd like to make ends meet.
I'd like to achieve big time.
This time I'd like the treat.
I'd like to give assistance. I'd like to help folks cope.
I'd like to close the distance.
This time I'd like the hope.
I'd like to show I'm sorry. I'd like to take it back.
I'd like to right the story.
This time I'd like the knack.
