The year is coming to an end and it is the time of reflection.
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.
