You Took The Time
You took the time to stop and chat
When we met in town today
To laugh a bit and hear the news
Before you went your way.

You took the time to lend a hand;
When you were needed, you were there.
To bless me with your friendship
To comfort and to share.

You took the time to write a note
When I was sick and special days
Like Valentines and my birthday,
Sending blessings my way.

You took the time for words of praise
That warmed my heart through;
You blessed my life many times
Just by being you.
To thoughts of a future that will never be known.
