measuring the life...

the forgotten
how you measure a year?
in daylights... in sunsets...
in cups of coffee... in books...
in words... in photos...

five hundred twenty-five thounsand six hundred minutes...
five hundred twenty-five journey to plan out...
five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes...
how do you measure the life of a man and a woman...

in truths that she learned...
or in times that he cried...
in bridges he burned...
or the way that she died...
(listening to Seasons of Love - a song in the musical Rent...)

measuring the life, i just count the days which i feel something warm in my heart growing... something that gives me motivate to live, to make hard decisions, to stand for what i want... for who i love...
