Time elapses so quickly.
Like the time between
A baby’s first smile
And the day you give
Her hand to another
Who loves her as much
As you do, with all they have.
Time isn’t there for us
To question or measure.
It is given as a way
To measure our lives.
What we’ve done,
Who we’ve shared
Our souls and hearts with.
Time like life and love
Are over so quickly.
Take time to love,
Love to take time before
There’s nothing to be measured.
