A Piece Of Time

by Ricardo
(U.S.A.)

A piece of time was all he asked. I did not have the time, or better yet, did not want to take the time. Too many other "more important things to do" with my time. Well, as time went on in my own life, time also went on in his.


The next thing I knew was that he had grown up and now did not have time for me!

All he asked for was a little time. I did not have the time, or better yet, did not want to take the time. To many other "more important things to do" with my time.

Well, as time went on in my own life, time also went on in his, and he became old and frail, and eventually died....... a piece of time was all they asked.


Wendy: Just had to add this video of Harry Chapin's song ... so perfect and so sad too. If you've never listened to the words, listen now - so true in so many families!
