I regret
Being so shy and soft-spoken
And where it did not get me
I regret to say:
I have plateaued
I cannot stay
There is further yet to go
It is safe to say
My fair face
Has seen it's share
Has seen enough

I regret being so hesitant
To do anything of consequence
I regret what time was spent
Propped on the fence
Inactive and apathetic
I regret not telling you earlier
While you were still here
And now
It's electronic love letters
Too cold to hold

I regret not remembering the good
Not documenting as extensively
The pleasure, the laughter, the humor,
The getting along

I regret to say:
I have plateaued
I cannot stay
There is further yet to go
