The important things
aren’t sitting on that book shelf
taking space
for memories that have past.

The important things
aren’t attached with precious metals
and sitting in a jewelry box
collecting dust.

The important things
haven’t happened yet.
They are each and every day,
every dream left unmet,
every hope left unfulfilled.

The important things
are the family you haven’t seen
in 10 years
or the friends that have become hard
to keep up with.

The important things
are happening now
and will happen tomorrow.
