A Tiny Little Bit of Time

 

A Tiny Little Bit of Time

 

A tiny little bit of time

Has come and gone since I

First began to breathe and know

The precious gift of life

 

It seems like yesterday that time

Had so much love to hold

Summer breezes, sunny days

Discoveries untold

 

 

A tiny little bit of time

Has come and gone since I

Sat upon my daddy's knee

And watched my momma smile

 

Buckets, Bare feet, fishin' poles

Rolling fields so green

Cattle grazed and tractors rolled

Along the creek so clean

 

 

A tiny little bit of time

Has come and gone since I

Grew from boy to taller lad

And dad took me aside

 

Taught me how to run a farm

And gave me wings to fly

Handed me the tractor keys

And watched me from the side

 

 

A tiny little bit of time

Has come and gone since I

Went away to school

Then started my own life

 

A family and a home was built

And though the times brought gain

I learned a lot about what it means

To suffer loss and pain 

 

 

A tiny little bit of time

Has come and gone since I

Laid my parents both to rest

I've said a few goodbyes

 

I look at yesterday and think

How'd it go so fast?

A hint of wanting to go back

And take more of the past.

 

 

A tiny little bit of time

Has come and gone since I

Discovered treasures that are new

Found fresh grace to smile

 

The old has shaped my heart to love

And now I meet today

I embrace the hope that's come

And will forever stay

 

Happy Birthday, Jerry

So much my pleasure Valentine Man! :) I cherish the friendship through the years and so thankful for the kindness you have shown not only me....but my family and friends!! You are blessed with an incredible heritage and place to ponder the things that are important and life-giving. If I can add but a little to that richness, then I too am blessed! May this year be one that would bring continued blessing, good health and dreams to fruition!

Kim......where do I start? This is so moving, and touches my heart so much. I try to imagine the time and thought you put into this, and I am humbled. Know that this birthday gift will never be forgotten. Know that I remain in awe of your talents in writing, poetry, and photography. And.....finally....know that I will always appreciate everything you have done to bless and enrich my life. Thank you so much.
