No Regrets Have I

Updated on June 12, 2017
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

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.

      Rasma, this is awesome! I, too, have no regrets and have led an interesting life. Not as interesting as yours, but interesting nonetheless.

      This poem made me smile!

      I always say I never have regrets, I just say they are opportunities to grow and learn in life. I really connected with this poem, because I am actually going through another transition in my life after the previous one did not work out the way I thought it would. Great job!

      Your poem and the included Edith Piaf Mix got my morning off to a great start. Many, many thanks. I hope you have a great day, too.

      I know I'm in an emotional funk when I start thinking of regrets and shouldas, couldas, and wouldas....that's when I need a good kick in the butt. :) Loved this!

      Love the Edith Piaf song. She put so much emotion into it, as have you with this piece. There's no point in regretting the past - we can only learn and do better. Your memories conjured up many of mine.

      Beautifully put together!
