Only Time

Who gives the gift of love
When you give your love to someone
You are surely giving of yourself
But are you not also giving of your time?

Is it not time that is the real gift?
The time you take to learn someone
The time you invest in another heart
And the time you receive from that heart

Is it not also time, that can take all that away
Time, that subtle thief
Secreting itself in everything we are
Everything we pursue

Stealing our youth
Stealing our health
Stealing our love
And.. stealing our life


Only Time... Enya
