Who could ask for anything more?

9 comments

Tomorrow is the first day of a brand new year. Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? You can choose to by anyone, alive today or someone gone long ago. If you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.

I’ll be me with good health. The reason? A known bad is better than an unknown. I’m not perfect, but I’m happy with my life. I love my family. I can’t imagine my life without them. I don’t know about what would be of my life being someone else in unknown circumstances with unknown qualities related with unknown people. Probably a disaster. I can’t even imagine it. Having good health would suppose a big change in my life for the best. And I won’t change my family. They are the best I have. As the old Gerswhin’s song says: Who could ask for anything more?

Days can be sunny with never a sigh
Don’t need what money can buy
Birds in the trees sing their day full of songs
Why shouldn’t we sing along?
I’m chipper all the day
Happy with my life
How do I get that way?
Look at what I’ve got:

I got rhythm, I got music, I got my man
Who could ask for anything more?
I’ve got daisies in green pastures
I’ve got my man
Who could ask for anything more?

Old man trouble I don’t mind him
You won’t find him ’round my door
I’ve got starlight
I’ve got sweet dreams
I’ve got my man
Who could ask for anything more?

Happy New Year to everybody!
