Gift

The day’s beginning is a special gift. Given over a life’s eternity, One can’t help but feel the daily change. How often we stay into the evening. An attempt to hold Onto the feelings of joy and elation, That made our day so emphatically special. Are not the future possibilities also special? That we dream of yet other gifts, gifts of such thought, that might also inspire elation From giver and receiver for all eternity. Constantly close to both, holding, As if to say, “Don’t Ever Change.” Does growth not require change? Should not that change be also special? Only if you have forgotten about holding, The longing embrace of previous gifts, One that requires attention for all eternity, fueling existential feelings of elation. Even when intentionally forgotten, holding On to the recipient, despite elation. At one point, this internal agony was a gift. What could ever make this change? This gift that could never be more special. Now it has changed for eternity. The re-direct of energy through eternity, The loss of love’s forever embrace. Love, making pain beautifully special. Will there ever be elation? Maybe if we only change The way we exchange special gifts. Our future’s eternity might fill with elation From holding the exchange Of something special, … the mere appreciation of a gift..
