Beating Heart

Beating Heart

Holding it in my open hand
Showing you my pain
Look at my heart
Watch it beat
Time after time
In a perfect rhythm
Does it only have one beat left?
Does it have a million to go?
Look at my beating heart
It has seen so much
Lived through unimaginable pain
Count the scars
Look how deep they are
How they never healed
Brush away the ashes
Look at the burns that have been left
Scorched by dreams that went unfulfilled
Look at my heart
Whether it beats just once
Or if it beats a million times
It doesn’t matter
At least it lived for a little while
