Heartbeat

My Heartbeat

Ours was a life

A fleeting dream

A muffled scream

A doused fire

But our times

Were pure pleasure

A dream to relish

A bite to munch

A tune to hum

You are a memory

To keep and share

You are a song

To learn and teach

You are a vision

To see and show

You are a love lost

A battle drawn

A dark recess

But, a part of me still
