This is your heart beat.
A slow steady rhythm marked by flickering white light.
This is the pulse of life.
An erratic fast then slow but pushing on relentlessly.
In the rush of everything, everyone, and everywhere I need to be,
I listen for the thumping in your chest
That sets my steps
And Moves me on despite the setbacks and lacking self-confidence.
I listen for the next beat with bated breath.
Keep beating though the journey is long.
Keep beating though the slog is hard.
Keep beating to guide me where I can hold you in my arms
and become the one who leads you beyond.
