“Heart surgery”

PAD day 21

“Heart surgery”

I have never heard a heart
beat quite like yours-

one that jingles as you walk.
It’s almost as if I can hear
each chamber chime
in harmony,
each step building into
a full arterial cathedral bell choir—

a crescendo of freedom and joy.

My heart lifts just watching you
from the balcony where I can see
inside you, each blood cell bursting
in life-giving warmth and bliss.

How can a heart be so free?
Is this the secret reward for
willing forgiveness or
daily gratefulness or
is it a special gifting?

I would slice a vein and bleed
all over life and me if I knew
I could grow a heart like yours.
