Regrets

Regrets I have.

I regret not having learned a musical instrument,

I do love music but I just cannot play it.

I regret not learning a foreign language,

Although I do know a smattering of some

I regret not having gone deep sea diving,

But claustrophobia and fear stopped me

I regret never have gone to outer space,

But money and opportunity were not there

I regret not traveling through Europe,

But I do not speak a foreign language

I do not regret knowing you,

I do not regret our lives together

I do not regret having children,

They give me pride and a place in the world

I do not regret grandchildren,
they are a special treat

In all the regrets are balanced out

By the non-regrets and that is as it should be.
