So aware of my heart beating
Listening so carefully
Wondering when the day will come
When it no longer beats for me.

What keeps the beat so steady?
The rhythm keeping time
Why waste a minute worrying?
Have that extra glass of wine.

Hold fast to those who love you
Save the precious memories
Time will quickly pass you by
Love and care wholeheartedly.

Enjoy the time allotted you
Like sand through the hourglass
It will be gone before you know it
Time passes by so fast.
