instead of counting sheep
• i count the stars sparkling with my dreams

...

and i'm not counting smiles
• i love to see their echoes on other people's faces
don't know how to count colours
• i collect them and make them my dress
also i don't count the butterfly kisses from my kids
• i savour them and give them mine
for sure i don't count money
• it's not that much .. i rather spend it

don't know how to count memories
• these treasures i need to not forget
you don't need to count the scars you or others gave me
• i live with them
and i will not count the caresses and kisses you give me instead
• i'll close my eyes and enjoy them

but
...
i'm counting the mo-ments that are yet between us
...
like slow pearls on a row .. not many mo-re ..
...
one .. two .. three ..
