Beat Slowly

Written by: Tahera Mannan

Beat slowly
Ever so slowly
Oh tender heart
For he is going to come

The sun is out
Ever so early
The clouds parting
To let the rays come thru

Beat slowly
Ever so slowly
Oh expectant heart
For he is going to come

The wind is blowing
Ever so gently
Bringing the smell
Of his warm body

Beat slowly
Ever so slowly
My frantic heart
For he is going to come

Flowers have bloomed
Ever so tenderly
Ready to 
Adorn my hair

Beat slowly
Ever so slowly
My patient heart
He is going to come

The diamond is shining
Ever so enticingly
Against my breast
To be touched by his lips
Beat slowly
Ever so slowly
Oh loving heart
For he is going to come

My breath has stopped
My body still
For there I hear
His approaching steps

Beat fast 
Ever so fast
Oh my waiting heart
For he has come
