Take Time for Friends

Take time to talk,
Take time to care,
Take time to tell your friend you’re there.
Take time to pause,
Take time to hear,
Take time to tell your friend you’re near.
Take time to laugh,
Take time to pry,
Take time to hold your friend and cry.
Take time to be a real friend,
It’s the most precious time you’ll spend.

    Wonderful reminder. Especially for those of us who are good at closing ourselves off from those around us.

  4. How appropriate this is for me today Pooky. So well said.


  5. Time is something so few people seem to have these days, making these words even more poignant.

      you’re so right. It’s easy to think you don’t have time, but some things deserve to be prioritised I think. This is what I tell myself each time I decide on a whim to go and have lunch with my grandpa and miss out on an afternoon’s work. I might think I’m too busy, but what could possibly be more important than making memories with my grandfather when I can never know how many more there are left to make?
