A Life Well Spent

Looking back upon my years, some thoughts bring laughter...some thoughts bring tears. I've made mistakes...I can not lie... the question that I ask myself is why? What made me choose to do or not, the answers for years I've often sought. I place my life upon a scale... the tears collected in a pail. Which weighs the most...the good or bad... did I enjoy the life I had? I wonder this...I wonder that, and of course the " What If's" come to bat. When all is said...and all is done, I need to start having a lot more fun! P.R. Deremer

Congrat.From the balance of title to the last verse, I enjoyed your poem ,thoughts and feelings.It reminds me of Edith Piaf :Je ne regrette rien...and of an older poem of mine, smt like... He keeps her hand, and that is enough.
