so long

don’t know what you’ve got
til it high-fives you on the way out
congratulating you for a job well done
and holds the door open
beckoning you through
waiting to see
if there’s any more fight in you
or if everything you’ve pushed for
or gained
is what you’re satisfied with
and it will only wait
so long
before it lets that door close behind
and it’s gone
