A World of Love

Listen to your heart
for it is wise
Forget the brain,
for the brain is built to survive
Is willing to sacrifice all~
even love~ to live
But the heart
the tender heart designed to give
Love for Love
is the energy thriving
When breathing slows
and the brain is dying
As the feeble
beating heart whispers
how will I be remembered
In my heart
there is but one question
as I surrender~
How well did I love?
