Happy New Year!

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes,

Five hundred twenty-five thousand

Moments so dear.


Five hundred twenty-five thousand

Six hundred minutes

How do you measure, measure a year?


In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights

In cups of coffee

In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.


In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes

How do you measure

A year in the life?


How about love?
How about love?
How about love? Measure in love

Seasons of love. Seasons of love.

Five hundred twenty-five thousand

Six hundred minutes!

Five hundred twenty-five thousand

Journeys to plan.


Five hundred twenty-five thousand

Six hundred minutes

How do you measure the life

Of a woman or a man?


In truths that she learned,

Or in times that he cried.

In bridges he burned,

Or the way that she died.


Oh you got to remember the love,

You know that love is a gift from up above

Share love, give love, spread love

Measure, measure your life in love.
© Rent, by Jonathan Larson


Wishing all my loyal readers (all five of you) a very happy new year. May your next five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes be better than this year's. I'm so happy I have met each and every one of you. Be safe. Be happy.
