The Perfect Present

Life
Should be like
Opening a
Gift

Done slowly
And
Methodically

With great
Anticipation

Untying the bow
And
Setting it aside
For
Future use

Sliding your fingers
Under the tape
To carefully loosen it
Without
Tearing the paper

Taking
A quick peek
To see if you can tell yet
Whatโ€™s inside

Slipping off the wrappings
And being
Delighted
With what you find

Done properly
It takes
Decades
