No Regrets by Mike Love

***I love this song. It forces me to think about the good things and treat the bad things as lessons.***



All this time will pass into the past
So if you’re happy then make each moment last
Don’t hold nothing back
And if you’re suffering remember it won’t last
Get over it fast
Get back to living and giving love

Life is just a test
I will remember, I will remember
This life ain’t over yet
So please remember not to forget

A new born baby’s crying their very first tears
They are so hopeful and great grandfathers die after many years
It is a circle of teenagers find love and screw it all up
They are so fearful but somehow invincible

This life is not a curse
But there will be hard times
And it will get worse
Always do your best
And always remember that you are blessed

Everywhere you go
Plant seeds, love will grow
But remember who you are

If you travel far remember your heart
Is where your home is and if you travel to the stars
Remember your heart
And you won’t get homesick or homeless at all

Life is just a test
With many failures and some success
But I will place my bets
And I will leave here with no regrets

since feeling is first by e.e. cummings

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry
—the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids’ flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis
