It Only Takes a Little Time by Margaret Burrow


It only takes a little time
To share what's in your heart,
Or simply give a smile, a grin,
Just will yourself to start.

Why do we allow ourselves
To let our own cares shout
Instead of seeing and hearing
What others' hearts cry out?

We have so much that we can give
That doesn't cost a dime.
An email, a phone call or two,
Just takes a little time.

Don't wait until you have something
Profound or deep to say,
When all you need to show you care
Is give your time away.

It only takes a little time
And you will soon find out,
The greatest need you really have
Is to spread your love about.
