More Precious than Gold

Time will tell you all the answers you need. Time will also reveal your deepest secrets and fears that you can’t hold any longer. With TIME, you eventually heal your wounds hoping that the scars will also be forgotten with time. Time is a precious thing we can’t be wasting. It is an asset far more valuable than gold because simply you cannot buy TIME with gold. Time is in your hands and slips away when you least expect it. Time will change you with no reason or explanation. Time is the now, the here and the never ending. Time is within me and for me. I don’t want to lose it or give it away. Time, please teach me and indulge me more with your experiences. Time, you are important for me! You are my everything!

The following poem is a living portrait of what I have learned with time. What about you? Thank you for visiting.


With time you learn


By
Jorge Luis Borges



After a while you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and chaining a soul,


And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning


And company doesn’t mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
and presents aren’t promises,


And you begin to accept your defeats

With your head up and your eyes open


With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,


And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans

And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.


After a while you learn…
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.


So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.


And you learn that you really can endure…


That you really are strong


And you really do have worth…


And you learn and learn…


With every good-bye you learn.
