the best present in the world

you can drive down hundreds of lanes
to find the last parking spot
you can squeeze through thousands of people
walk down dozens of isles
to reach the last item on shelf
you can work days and nights
to earn piles of paper notes
but you still cannot afford
this present
that is being present

Being present for those stressful lives
Being present for those lonely nights
Being present for those teary eyes

thank you for being present
when i did not want to be present
