Allow me to measure in time
my happiness since you became mine.
The moment our lips touched I reckon
I aged a minute for every second
In your embrace, I grow wise
With you my internal clock flies
I looked into your eyes, my heart danced,
My lifetime, our lifetime, filled with romance
Time lingered only once, on the words “I do”
My happiness was as vast as the sky is blue
With each second, hour and day
Even as death came closer to lead us away
Know that my happiness grew all the more
For beside you, each year was a score
Every breath breathed a thousand times
Every kiss, a beautiful rhyme
Every moment pure and right
Dancing across eyes now stolen of sight
Another breath, perhaps my last
My, in your presence, time moves fast.
Hold my hand, one last kiss
I’ll spend eternity in remembered bliss.
