The Heart Is A Metronome

The heart is a metronome

In tandem with life’s flutters

Life’s irregularities

Empathy is harmonic

Simply harmonic

Back and forth

To and fro in equal measure, in rhythm

Empathy is access

Its free flow gives life

Warm red love, crimson joy

Empathy is heart

Its beats give access

Sing me a song, strike me a beat

Heart drum

In time

In good time

Heartbeats sound – lub-dub, lub-dub

Flip the chart

The new hits, numbers one and two – lub-dub

The heart is a metronome

When the beat stops

The music dies

When the heart stops

It all stops
