The Hearts

October 17, 2018

The hearts of men and every woman
Beat, pound a melodic rhythm
Breath taken in, breathing out
Lungs expand and eyes look about
Fingers touch a soft, gentle ground
As feet run full speed all around.

All this done with not a thought
Of how to do it or where it starts
For life begins and only stops
When the end has come
And the heart, it stops.

The Heart

The heart is cold
Has done its job
Time to rest, time to be
Blessed forever in eternity.

The heart is old
And has ceased to be
In this world now
Surrounded by exquisite beauty.

The heart is pure
Has done its job
Is now with the hallowed one
The eternal God.
