No Regrets Have I

As life goes on,
I tend to think,
of what has been.
Perhaps loving and trusting,
going a bit wild,
in my youth,
battered my heart,
one too many times,
but mended all the same,
no, no regrets.
Had a childhood,
which some only dream about,
lived in two different worlds,
rich in knowledge,
music and nationality,
but no, no regrets.
Perhaps nostalgia,
sometimes make me reflect,
upon things –
that will never come again.
I’ve shared a lot with others,
been kind to the elderly,
who’ve crossed my path
and loved each and every furry creature,
that I’ve had the pleasure to know,
no, no regrets.
Seen things others haven’t,
have contact with the world beyond
and with the Lord beside me,
I can find something to make me smile,
each and every day,
no, no regrets.
I go on full of confidence,
with love for everyone,
who shares my life with me –
world, you are lovely indeed.
There are guardian angels,
up above to watch over me,
a soul mate that loves me
and true and loving friends.
no, no regrets.
I may not have a life,
that has many riches,
but I have enough blessings,
to get me through each day
and when the world is finally finished with me,
perhaps the angels may ask –
Was there anything you ever regretted?
No, no regrets have I.

    Wonderful poem. I have found that as I grow older I have less regrets and more gratitude. Jamie
