"Tick, tick, tick" as I lay
wide awake at three o'clock a.m.
counting seconds until I drift again.
They are always moving, these seconds,
one after another after yet another.
Some go by unnoticed by me,
and others I find myself amazed
at the magic in this world.
Even when times are so hard,
there is still so much beauty.
My wish for myself and others
that not a second goes by
without knowing beauty and love,
even when other feelings are present,
may those still be the underlying.
