I heard the tick of the clock
Tick tick tick
Seconds passing quickly
Marking moments in time
Moments I will never get back
Did I make the most of them?
What do I want to do with each tick?
Breath between until the tock
Savouring the moments between
Knowing they are filled with love
Fills me with gratitude
For each moment I get to savour
I live the width of my life
Not just the length
The tick of the clock measures the length
Not the moments in the sun
Or the tail wags from my pup
Or the hugs shared with friends
Or the passionate kisses with that special someone
Those moments can’t be measured
By the simple tick of the clock
