Instead of counting hours or minutes
I will count each new moment
As if it were a day
And perhaps when my time comes
I will find
That I spent my days
As wisely as I could...

Something simple

one
but needs
to set
their mind
to frame
all moments
a thousand times
in passions light
stripping them
of all
that does
not avail
thus bare
within
the heart
revealing
heaven
unto
the poorest
beggar
in us
all
the sweetness
of 1st
loves kiss
the touch
that quarrels
not
finding favor
in GODs
full view
no longer
hidden
but
embraced
befriended
with open
arms
made drunk
onto death
and
life thereafter
a thousand
times
crying out
in passions
light
bid I
to frame
all
moments
thus
and
thus
and
thus
ado

I guess we all should try to look at our time in this way. Something simple, but what a difference it could make. Very nice poem.

Amber said "something to strive for" and rightly so, but distraction often rules our minds and can take over, all we can do is to try our best.
