Gift Of Time

The place, it matters little,
For settings quickly fade from view,
But my heart is always touched
When I spend time with you.

The gift of time you’ve given
Is treasured by me far more
Than cards, or gifts, or favors,
That others might long for.

I feel I know you better now,
Understand things not understood,
And, since that’s my one desire,
For me, this time’s been very good.

Though it’s been said before,
I feel I must say it again,
“To know you is to love you.”
Thank you for being my friend!

  1. If this was on a card, I would have purchased it for my dear friend who always has time for me. A truly precious gift indeed. Nicely written

    The gift of time is the most precious gift of all – why don’t most of us realize that earlier in life. Very special tribute … thank you for sharing! becca

      Yes, when we give our time, we are giving everything we have at the moment. And it’s something we can never recover once it’s given. If people were more aware of “life” and how precious it is, they would more fully appreciate the value of the gift of time and how much that particular gift reveals the love of the giver– for them. Thank you for your thoughts and your time!
