Erica Francis

(January 7,1988 - September 17,2078 / Columbus, OH)

In a heartbeat


In a single heartbeat
she can change
and turn her head away.

In a single heartbeat
time moves on
and she's hand in hand
with someone else.

In a single heartbeat
plus a single heartbeat
plus a hundred more
will eventually turn into
eternity.

In a single heartbeat
he can change
and never let her go.

In a single heartbeat
plus a single heartbeat
can make a new beat
and keep love whole.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
