Is it a knowledge that you have done your best
to receive what life offers you in the form of more hard work?
Is it a family posing for a photograph
they will forget about it under a mound of items thrown in a bedside drawer?
Is it giving a lucky charm
or assuring that your happiness will be tied to another human?
Is it raising a glass
until your hands can no longer hold it, until your eyes can no longer stay open?
it is the kisses, hailing from earth
a stack of years that flash in a blink of an eye
it is the knowledge that you can stand
when a pile of snow suddenly heaps onto you.
