The Best Gift One Can Get - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The best gift one can get,
Is to grow older to experience...
The making of mistakes made.
And to admit the getting over them,
As blessings to realize with time given.
And only time can undo the impossible.

And facing to move on from a past to accept,
Is something maturity does...
To help one heal with a forgiving to forget.
And to let go without regrets to reminisce,
Of the doing of what, why and when...
To move on to realize what happiness is.

'You seem to be so happy.
Why? '

~I've stopped lieing to myself.'

'When? '

~You will know when that time to you comes.~

'What? '

~No!
It's in the WHEN.
Not the WHY.
Or the WHAT.
But in the WHEN.
And in the WHEN that begins...
You will know the WHY.~

'How? '

~In the WHEN that begins...
You will then know the WHY,
And the HOW of your own happiness.
Trust me...
These doings need no explanation.
Time and patience is the teacher that gives.~
