There is so much to give in a lifetime
And in a moment like this what should be given?
Each thought, each consideration is a contribution
To all we have and no one can see the tree from the forest…
That is how in order things are…
Nor can we distinguish the drop of rain from all the rain that falls…
Like every drop of sand… each falls independently
Into the hour glass that measures so much time
And makes the time spent complete… drop by drop.
To make the hour last… you simply turn the hour glass upside down again…
For another chance and a little more time
To give yourself all there is because…
There is so much time in a life and we have all this time to give.
As we live from the beginning in our own time
What has been given to us is our portion to take.
So take the time my dear and give as it has been given unto you
And in a moment like this decide for yourself what should be given?
Each thought, each consideration is your contribution to life.
