I know what I want & it’s not what I need
Happiness & love, not materialistic greed,
Do I own anything that I would collect?
If my house took fire & everything was wrecked.
What I’ve learned that I’m good at doing,
Is creating a life from the ruin.
If everything burned & if everything was lost?
I could get it back at a pricey cost.
Time is the one thing that I couldn’t buy
You can spend money but the days go by,
It’s there today & it’s there tomorrow
You can’t trade time & time you can’t borrow.
Time is something that can’t be forgotten
We’re all different but we have time in common
Some have more, some have less
Something priceless that we possess.
Spend your time it will soon be gone,
Be happy, free, & hold a loved one,
Don’t waste time on money, power & gold
You will only regret it when you grow old.
