A lonely heart beats
Pulsing its way, wearily
Through a difficult, stressful life
Longing for a return to joy
The joy it had and lost
So many years ago
I watched a beating heart go by
Glimpsing the beauty
Still locked within
And aching to break free
Trapped by its desire
To regain a love departed
So I paused, and stopped
My own heart affected
I  approached the dolorous one
Wishing to release the angel inside
Tentatively I knocked
Patiently awaiting a reply
Do I have what the angel needs?
Can I unlock the cage surrounding
And release an exiled beauty?
I would like to think I can
That I have the power to help
Time will tell
Let me be right.
