Everything is Okay

Listen to the Heartbeat….

Steadily it goes, never ceasing.
A rhythmic pounding, slower than mine.
It tells me she is there so everything is okay.

Listen to the muffled voices.

Chattering excitedly, singing quietly.
Reading me stories…
Telling me everything is okay.

Listen to the Heartbeat….

Steadily it goes, never ceasing.
Fading, but always there…
So everything is okay.
