No matter what your beliefs, religious or not
We’re all affected by increased violence and crime
With the season we are in, thoughts are on others
The best gift we can give, is most often our time.
Too often so many try to impress with their gifts
Spend more than they have for things others don’t need
While recipients forget how to be thankful or kind
Getting so caught up in their own selfishness or greed.
Have we forgotten how to spend time with those we love
Is it too much to spend time to sit together and talk
Put away electronics, tablets, phones, turn off the tv
Take someone we love, hand-in-hand and go out for a walk.
Life is too short to just leave special moments to chance
I’ve learned that time can take its toll before we realize
Set a goal to be thankful, make the time while you still can
Show those that you love that it is their time that you prize.
