The best gift you could give me?
Just a little of your time.
I’ve got far too many bath salts,
And I’m not that keen on wine.
A small space in your diary,
That is marked out just for me,
Would be more gratefully received,
Than jumpers, rugs or tea.
We see each other often,
But in passing, time goes fast;
I’d like to sit a while,
Catching up as folk rush past.
So please don’t spend your money;
Even if your gift’s sublime,
It won’t be half as precious
As an hour of your time.
