I have no large regrets,
That is to say, no roads not taken
I would return to and travel.
I may, with some trepidation,
But no expectations,
Retrace footsteps of my journey.
There were things said and done
That pained a kind heart,
A well intentioned reach out
That was shunned,
And many ill conceived and immature
Actions, that looking back,
Were not worthy of the being
I hope I am now and can be.
For all of those I am truly sorry,
And yet, I still err too often.
I still, in an hour or a day,
Revisit and say no, that is not worthy,
But, as I look around and "feel" around
I would hesitate to change too much,
Because I would truly regret
Not having the wonderful love and family
And friends that surround me today.
