Precious Time

As bells that chime
Only a little while
On the face of time
We are but a smile

Precious youth comes and goes
Precious time slips by
Seeming like no one knows
Where it went or why

Jobs take much of our lives
Leaving little time to do
What some may not realize
Is most important to you

Taking time to stop
To really listen well
You’ll find that what you thought
Is truly what you feel

As the years set in
Time passes on
Before you see it end
The hurried life is gone

So keep the time you need
And take the time to listen
To every word you heed
In every special person

More precious than a flower
Than all the words that ryhme
Is the true grace and power
In every moment of precious time
