This is a very sincere expression of the poet's thoughts. I share his views completely, I believe I would personally do all that he says if I were to live my life again...

Criticizing a poet for the authentic expression of his thoughts and feelings exhibits an ignorance beyond belief.

Wishful thinking indeed. If one misses all these in the present life, I don't think that he can make up all these in the coming life. What we are not in the present life, we wish to be in the coming life. Can we become everything and everybody? Never. Let us live this life with all our limitation, yet, with contentment and happiness. This is what we have to learn. What is the fun of having more ice-creams in the next life?

A beautiful, simply-expressed poem by a beautiful, complex poet. His 'The Art of Poetry', among many others of his works, should be de riggeur for any who wish to write poetry. :)

But the 'now' was/is Borges. How could he come back and not be Borges? A foolish poem by a foolish old man full of foolish regrets. But to the extent the poet presents that foolish old man to us authentically it is a good poem.
