Let’s start off the new year right, with regrets
Regrets are for fools, cowards, and small-minded people
Like me

The first regret is the obvious one:
I regret drinking too much last night
But I don’t

I regret making no New Year’s resolutions
But I don’t

The other regrets fall into two categories:
Regretting what I did and what I didn’t do

I regret falling in love with you
But I don’t

I regret putting all my eggs in your basket
But I don’t

I regret letting you slip my grasp
But I don’t

But then again, too few to mention.
