Heart disease remains the leading cause of death for people in the US, with the CDC reporting that one person dies every 34 seconds from cardiovascular disease. The CDC also reports that about 697,000 people in the US died from heart disease in 2020. That comes out to about one out of every five deaths reported that year. Dan Rafter
When you hold me Hold me so close our hearts blend. If you care for me at all Make me believe without having to ask. Whenever you desire to be with me Show me like a poem written in visual words. If you want me to be in your life, Show me you do, like a puzzle piece knows it fits in its place. Make me see what you see when you think of me With all the purpose that special meaning can be. Loving should come without hesitation And it should serve as a privileged obligation. When giving me your self Help me feel like you have nothing left to give If you can’t Disappear to whence you came.
It’s a faint and yet fleeting sigh When it enters your heart like a big surprise. Tears can’t erase the echo you hear When it’s the one you hold so dear. Some say they know Some say to listen hurts their hearts so. The truth is they are unpredictable The feelings are so compatable. To listen to them surely takes courage To keep wanting them as to save up in storage. Whispers of a person’s hearts company Take root or can just flee. There’s no rhyme or reason Sometimes just for a season. Whispers of your heart, your soul, and through time Can be yours and will be mine.
