Rhythm Of The Heart

by Samuel De Lemos


The rhythm of the heart
It beats and beats
Like a North African drum.

The soul-it’s rhythmic.
The body-it has a song!

Melodies- a stethoscope
only hears.
when pressed
Against our skin-
so cold.

The song of our bodies
The doctor hears.
With his instrument
Intently with his ears:

Boom, boom,
boom, boom…

A steady beat
Life is heard…

Through the rhythm
of our hearts
That sings-
The song
a melody
of life
so dear.
