Does my heart beat still?
As the memories that tie
begin to fade.

Does my heart beat still?
Now that you have all left and
only I have stayed.

Does my heart still beat?
As I study the drawing
and see your face.

Now I sit alone
and wait, until
my beating heart…
                                    is still.
