Unpacking


This box I filled
but a month ago
now sits half empty,
once full of things
I thought were mine;
everything looks 
like it did before,
yet somehow,
it's not the same.

Over time,
we need 
less and less,
tend to cling
to more and more.
For years I have given
things away,
in preparation
for another plan.

Please accept
if I offer a gift,
take this piece
I no longer use,
make it your own
while you still can.
