Give children the gift of time
It's all we have to give
Give children the gift of time
Let's teach them how to live


Our children are the future
Take time to light their way
Don't wait until tomorrow
They need our love today

It's time for us to realize
What children really need
Not videos and stereos
But time with you and me

We must protect the children from
The evils of today
Refuse to let the pain go on
No more, no how, no way

It's time for us to take a stand
And show them that we care
The shame, the pain, the losses
Are more than we can bear

The time is now for all of us
To show them that we care
Give children what they really need
More time, more love, more prayer

Give children the gift of time
It's all we have to give
Give children the gift of time
Let's teach them how to live

You truly have a special gift, Doug. I have already been enriched by your words.
Reviewed by John Bidwell
I am so fortunate- the most blest I know- because my 19 year old son will still hang out talking with Dad until 2AM, or go for a long walk.
Just like I remember with my Dad.
Nothing worse than children left out of a parent's life...and for what?
We can all pay when a child suffers neglect.
So well said- thanks for sharing.
