Time is such a gift of excitement.
Time gives us life.
Time gives us color,
and sound,
and feeling.
Time gives us anything...

Love is such a gift of adrenaline.
Love gives us something to believe in.
Love gives us hope,
and faith,
and trust.
Love gives us anything...

Death is such a gift of heartbreak.
Death gives us something to fear,
and cower,
and deny.
Death gives us everything.


Time gives Love a certain span, before Love gives Death its end.
Love gives Time all he's missing, before Time gives Death its end.
Death is given the end of Time and Love, but gives them a gift right back when the time is right...

This is a poem inspired by the 2016 movie, Collateral Beauty.
