A HEARTBEAT

                                                                                                                
          A HEARTBEAT

                                                                                 
 Listen to my heartbeat, thump, thump, it beats,

                                                                                  
 Blood runs through it, listen to me as I breathe.

                                                                                      
 A heartbeat means life, it beats fast or slow,


 Thump, thump, it goes, a heartbeat that slowly grows 
 Old.

                                                                                          It speaks of who I am, only one of a kind,


 Listen! thump, thump, with a hand to my chest feel 
 As I am alive.

 A heartbeat lets us know that this moment is still 
 Ours,
                                                                                      
 Hear it pound! listen to its beautiful sound.

                                                                               Thump, thump, thump, thump, one beat at a time,


 A heartbeat so precious, thump as it beats one more 
 Time.
