Two Heartbeats

Two heartbeats beside each other
So warm, so hopeful
They keep in time, a steady beat
Until the day one starts to slow.
The other speeds up in fear
As its partner weakens
And finally
One heartbeat all alone
So cold, so empty
It keeps an unsteady rythym
Until the day it finds a new partner.
This new heartbeat calms it
And fills it back up
With laughter
And hope
And love.
