Am I to just stand here
As my heart is whisked away?
Thoughts dissolving into wordless matter
As I think of what to say.
The pitter-patter inside my chest-
I say, it must be false
For there is no doubt at all
That I have given you my pulse.
But pause! Oh wait!
Perhaps it could be true!
That this heart, full of joy and life,
Has been given to me by you.
