not played-out

during a lifetime of knowing
there are but a handful
hold a personal allegence to
for having learned something profound
or have been touched by realms you did not comprehend then,
but have surely come to now know

there are also those grains of sand in your hand
those lifetimes not played-out…
that you will die with

having released all others with a “thank you” and a kiss,
those lifetimes not played-out
are those grains of sand
which did not fall through your fingers

they embed your palm
to remain eternally yours
