The Perfect Gift



“Slow down, you’re moving too fast~ gotta make memories~ the gifts that last”

~.      ~.      ~.      ~.      ~.      ~.      ~.      ~.      ~.      ~.      ~


     Running round looking for the perfect gifts to give~
Sorry to tell you, they are no where to be found
     They are readily available, no matter where you live~
Stop running in circles, get your feet back on the ground

They do not even cost a dime~
You better soon awaken
Give precious gifts of your time~
Before they are all taken



Just saying……………
            
               “The best things in life ARE free”
