Emee.chan was a bit emotional while writing this. Must be the heat.
We might not be immortal, but our bonds are timeless.
Enya- Only Time
How Much Time Is Enough Time?
How much time is enough time
To cherish all we got, until
That final tick of life's clock?
How much do we have left
To kiss and hug our loved ones,
To show them they do mean
The world to us?
Appreciate your mothers, they do
The most for us even when
They aren't always in their element.
It would be so hard without them.
Appreciate your fathers, they're trying
Their best too, no matter what it
May seem on the surface.
There are so many people who
Make our lives worth living,
Who bring laughter even when
Tears are spilling.
We may have today, then the next day
It can all be gone in an instant.
We're never really prepared for
The feeling of missing.
So let's use our time well,
It is precious and it passes in
A blink of an eye, so fast we
Get caught by surprise.
There will never be enough of anything.
Not enough kind gestures, kind words.
Not enough tight hugs, squeezing each other tight.
Not enough love shared between those you hold dear, those close to your heart.
Not enough time for each of the above.
