What ever “it” is!?

Did not have it,

So I craved it.

Could not afford it,

So I wanted it.


Finally received it,

So I savoured it.

In time got bored of it,

So I stopped needing it.


For granted I took it,

So I forgot to value it.

Only later to lose it,

So I held tightly on to it.


It was too late for anything,

And letting go, the hardest bit.

Now, I sit with sweet memories.

Realising the real value of it.
