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.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
