Measure Time

We measure time in so many ways
While holding our breath … seconds
When running the mile … minutes
(lots of them for me)
a movie in hours
a semester in weeks
a year in seasons
a life in years
and a relationship in experiences . . .

first e-mail, first phone call, first irl date
first kiss, first hug, first overnight late
new restaurants, new movies, new places to go
new just for us . . . new jewelry to show
misunderstandings, separating rifts
insanity issues, random gifts
time to talk, to play, to work, to scheme,
time to wonder, to grow, to laugh, dream
all of these times mark the passing of us

no matter the incident
however time’s marked
what matters the most
is time together in heart
