Give & Take

It takes your innocence

& gives you truth

It gives you memories

But takes your youth


It takes your mother

It drives you mad

It gives you tears

& makes you sad


It heals your wounds

& takes your pain

It gives you children

To take your name


It takes your strength

It steals your eyes

It gives you knowledge

& makes you wise


It takes your life

without a sign

It gave that life

Its name is time
