In a moment of doubt,
or confusion, or despair.

Pause.
Be still.
And listen to your heartbeat.

Listen to its strings
humming, stirring
Those stretches of muscles
Handmade,
with love

Listen to its rhythm
living, kicking
Echoing against your eardrums
Handmade,
with love

In that moment
It is His, too,
living, kicking,
echoing against your eardrums

Listen to His heartbeat
Listen to His engulfing love
softly, yet steadfastly ringing
unfailingly caring

Listen to His heartbeat
echoing against your eardrums
And be still.
