Howdy folks! 

Delilah, on her radio show last Christmas season (2017), talked about giving the Gift Of Time. Hence, this poem came to me as a result. She has a wonderful, positive, uplifting show, which on she encourages folks to Love and be kind to one another and she encourages those discouraged not to give it up. We need many more of her in this world. 

"Gift Of Time"

Of all the gifts you give, have you ever thought
To give the Gift Of Time, a gift that can't be bought?
It seems we're so preoccupied with giving gifts, the reason,
To consume our time so much through the busy Christmas season.

We run up the credit cards to buy material things,
Thinking the gifts we buy, happiness it brings.
But afterward, when Christmas is behind us once again,
We have to work double time to pay for all the gifts then.

But it's time with our Loved ones that means so much more,
A priceless gift we need not to work any double time for.
Things materialistic, the novelty of fades and goes away,
But memories made through the Gift Of Time, with us forever stay.

The returns would then be 'to each other' and not to the store,
Where many stand in line to exchange the gifts we work to pay for.
With the Gift Of Time an exchange occurs but not in retail,
But of reciprocation where memories made can't ever be for sale.

Memories with Loved ones are so precious to always treasure,
Which only with the Gift Of Time can we increase the measure.
The more time we give, the more we, our memory bank, fill,
That one day might have to sustain us, our last day, until.

Since we never know what tomorrow holds for us to face,
All the memories we make today might have to take the place
Of someone dear to us through the rest of our tomorrows.
Precious are then our memories to soothe us through our sorrows.

When we waste our time on things that matter less,
It is time lost we can't gain back to then readdress.
When there's no more time left to share and to spend
Time with someone dear to us, the regret of has no end.

So let us all remember that materialistic things
Cannot ever replace what the Gift Of Time brings.
Let us not reserve just Christmas to our precious gift, give,
But all throughout the year to enrich our lives as we all live.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗
