Quietly beating heart, you beat so softly beneath my palm.

Even in the complete silence of this room, I can hear you faintly.

Barely there yet really there, moving life through this body.

I take the breaths and you keep going, tag-teaming our way.

One day when I reach the end, you’ll stop just as softly, I hope.
