Her Beating Heart

Alone but not lonely 

My heart split into a thousand pieces 

As my dearest waits for me one hundred miles from my touch

Reaching out into the dark cold night from my bed

I am reminded by foul memories 

Far from her touch my mind assembles fleeing thoughts

As my eyes fill with the tears of the fallen and broken

Rising to new heights she takes me away from fear and doubt

Delivering me into her loving arms cradled next to her beating heart
