Je ne regrette rien

I regret nothing - with apologies to Edith Piaf for stealing the title of her iconic song.
We all have a past

A bank of memories 

Both happy and sad

Of love and passion

Excitement and delight

Loss and heartbreak.

Je ne regrette rien.

Fleeting encounters

Where impetuosity overcame reason

Fuelled by intense desire

Being mutual objects of lust 

Like a flash of lightning 

Incandescent, hot, ephemeral

And soon gone. 

Je ne regrette rien.

Having been loved deeply

And loved back as well

Sharing everything 

Corporeal and intellectual

Carnal and cerebral

Passion that lasted 

Through the seasons

Love etched deeply

In my mind as perfect.

Je ne regrette rien.

Time passes, things change

And yet, these memories sustain us

Touchstones of what we were

And what we can be

And what we are 

And what we will be.

Endless love and longing

Infinite possibilities for passion

To lose oneself in another

Forever and finally choose

To belong to him.

Je ne regrette rien.
