More elegant, nothing could be
than a simple heartbeat
So rhythmic, so alive
So vital to all I am
Pushing life, through my veins
one precious surge after another
Keeping the miracle going
even without my asking
Quickening in the presence
of a lovely lady
Fluttering at the sight
of a spellbounding sunset
Invigorating me, as I run
life’s endless mazes
Exonerating me of my sins
of too much of too many things
Its irresistible music, overtakes me
fills me, sweeps me away
Fills my hope for the next moment
