As I lay in bed late at night,
listening to your heartbeat,
I wonder,
Does it beat for me alone?

As I lie there,
listening to the sound of your life
I think of how comforting it is,
feeling how alive you are.

I can feel your blood pulsing through your veins
I press my lips against the soft, warm skin of your chest
and think about how the feeling of
your heartbeat on my lips
is the best in the world.
