Time

I think the best gift you can give someone is your time. You only have so much. You have numbered heartbeats, countable breaths and a measurable impact.

I think the best gift you can receive from someone is their time. They only have so much and yet they are giving it to you. They are not giving you 5 minutes, or half an hour. They are giving you 350 beats of their heart, 600 breaths.

Time of course isn't always just given and received. Sometimes it's taken. It's a boyfriend who promised forever but ended it. It's a disease spreading through your cells. It's a murderer stalking prey in the night. The true thieves of time, cutting your heartbeats short, lowering your breath count, taking what you never meant to give so much of.
