In a heartbeat Poem by Erica Francis


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.
