No Regret - Dedicated to Danny Draper


Now is all we really have.
Open your mind to eternity.

Rehashing the past is pointless.
Empathy for others is a life sustaining quality.
Greatness is not measured by material possessions.
Remember the true source of Life.
Empower yourself with positive thoughts.
Tiny steps complete the journey of a thousand miles.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is dedicated to Danny Draper who gave me the inspiration to write my first acrostic poem. And who inspired this poem by his vote of confidence and his comment 'Risks should always be taken and helping others always persued' The first letter of each line constructs the title of this poem.

    Dear Lynne, I am honoured and humbled by the kindness of your dedication. NO REGRETS a timeless affirmation, finely interpreted here. Do you also know the Dylan Thomas classics - Death shall have no dominion and Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Your poem is boundless,
    the infinite there
    will take us all,
    to who knows where.

    When we arrive
    we will not know as
    directions infinite
    before us flow. (Report) Reply
