Heartbeat 

And this heart

Tough with scars 

Broken beyond repair 

Still beats, finding new rhythms 

Instead of trying to go backwards 

To what was 

It learns from each new instrumentalist 

Ways to love more fully 

Of others 

And itself 

For their years of ache 

It has never beat 

Quite so loud 

Or so strong 

As it did

For you
