The Test of Time
When I am anxious
And in distress
Those times when my heart rate race
And blood pressure seem to rise.
I lay my hand over my chest and feel my heartbeat, closely.
It is strange but there’s a calming effect to it.
Those beats seem to say that similar situations have come and gone
And I’m still here.
It seems to say there is life and so hope
Like a reassurance that this too will pass.
So you too, find courage that there’s hope with the living.
