Beating Still

Beating still

If I gave you my heart

What would you do with it?

Bundle it away

Into a cupboard.


Tangled up with cables

And cassette tapes

Forgotten and mislaid

But beating still.


I won’t give you my heart

You have no use for it

Your cupboards are

Already too full.


I’ll hold it here at home

Warm, protected

Cared for and preserved

And beating still.


But if you want my heart

To exchange with your own

I hope that you could

Find some room.


Keep it somewhere special

Safe and treasured

Wanted and revered

And beating still.
