The Reckoning of Time

How do you reckon time
in moments?
in days?
in months?
in years?

On in the beating of a heart
one beat for your family
one for your spouse
one for you children
one for your life

Moments turn to days
turn to months
turn to years
too fast and they are gone

The beating heart remembers
all beats given
all the love given
in the reckoning of time
