What Matters Most

I didn’t travel the world
Unless Canada counts.

I didn’t have an engagement ring
Because we married so fast.

I didn’t have a honeymoon
Because money was tight.

I didn’t have a baby
But I did adopt a teenager.

I didn’t get divorced
Because he died first.

I didn’t stay alone
Because new love came along.

I didn’t become rich
But I do have enough.

I didn’t write a book
But I do write on Medium.

Many things I did not do — 
Some I regret not doing then
But wouldn’t do now.

What wasn’t done 
Has no value — 
What was done
Is priceless.
