Your precious little heart
Beats in time with mine,
You are the heart within my heart,
Our souls are intertwined.

Our hearts both beat as one
To the drumbeat of the Earth
The chord resounding unifies
All life in grief or mirth.

I hold you in my heart
And lift you to the light
That permeates our fleeting breath
And dissipates the night.

Time is rushing on, time is standing still,
Though time may melt or turn to stone,
Your presence I can feel

As long as I draw breath
I hear a drumming sound
As heartbeats echo through the Earth
And stars swirl all around.

As long as I draw breath
I reach through veils of time
My heart still beats with yours,
As your heart beats in mine.
