Wish I Gave You More

The greatest gift you can give is time
I wish I gave you more of mine
What you are is pure divine
What we were is lost in time.

What we had was something great
You gave so much; did I only take?
I wish I gave you as much, so much it can ache
Though we can only hope to learn, from our mistakes.

For I can’t change
What has been done
For now it’s lost,
Though for awhile all was won.

From the old,
Something new will always come
I hope to grasp it with both hands
Something I hope you’ve already done.
