We've Got

much too much time
when we think we've not enough
every breath is a lifetime

one lifetime exactly
that's the most we can notice
the most we can live at a time

even though most
of our little breathed lifetimes
pass through us unnoticed

and sometimes I think
how exhausting it would be
to really live all the time

attentive to the world
at every single breath
never missing a one

this is one, this is one
this is one, this is one
oh, much too much time

and yet how pleasant
when time seems foreshortened
to count down a dozen rich

completely inhaled, exhaled
noticed, cherished, marvelous
strange panoramic full lifetimes
