just shy.

it was just shy of a month,
a tiny segment of time.
though significant, still;
a little glimmer of shine.

me, though, i'm afraid i did not recognize 
the gold that was dripping from the while
i was so concerned about my sodden heart
all wrapped up in logistical files.
but now that i'm dry,
i identify the smiles
and i wish i would have drank it all in.

it's a funny thing how as humans we do that.
we don't know what we've got
until it's gone.
and we seem to always want 
what we don't quite have.

but i guess that's part of living
and learning.
it makes us appreciate and value.

that maybe, just maybe, 
next time,
we'll soak it all in.
