No Regrets


No Regrets

By: JP Leddy

You filled my heart and my mind

with a fullness of life I thought lost

I was caught up in possibilities

and not in the impossibilities

some called me foolish

yet I believed in miracles

only to find out that

like stories found in fairybooks

and imaginations rich in beauty

and only in dreams where what we want

exists in fully and sweetly

your heart was not in the same place

bittersweet I leave the remnants of that dream

in the same place where I leave all my broken feelings

not with the same sadness but with no regrets

For I discovered I could love so freely again

so unabashedly

I have come out stronger

and for the one who gains my heart

he will know a love so full

that miracles will seem pale

against the life we will build together

Vaarwel, Knysna…

  1. Vaarwel Knysna…..My favourite place in the whole wide world (used to live in Cape Town 10 years ago) Your poem has touched my heart in a deep way, words spoken from a deep place. I believe that people come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime…..and from each we learn. I am sending you hugs and much love….one persons loss is another’s gain!! Thanks for sharing such a wonderfully written poem. ~ Amanda x

  2. Thank you. I fell for this one somewhat too fast and long distance. He is a good guy and I think of him as a friend, but alas….I only wish him happiness. I wish my heart would only be less heavy when the emotion moves like waves over it.

    Thanks you for your comments.

  4. This was lovely, I really liked

    I have come out stronger

    and for the one who gains my heart

    he will know a love so full

    that miracles will seem pale

    against the life we will build together

    It take so much courage to embrace both love and love’s end.

    Regards…
