The Gift is Not a Given

The Illusion of Time Is the essence of one’s existence For we are born to believe That we will live forever The Essence of a Dream Is that we can achieve Whatever we strive to obtain There are no boundaries; only infinity The Infinity of Love Allows us to care for many For time is not the issue Love is but a passage of our reality The Passage of a Lifetime Is but an integration of each Combined for as long as we are given For nothing, especially time, is limitless.
