I Have Not Lived Before

She said, “I regret nothing,
but I do miss all the lives I’ve lived.
For, I have lived many, many lives—
as many different people.
I have yet to live one
that I have not loved,
but what I’m living right now
is the one I love the most.
For all those lives
and all those people
are now under the same roof,
bringing their range of expertise
to shed light on something
I have never lived before.”
