Just a Heartbeat Away

This deep drum
Its rhythm booming
Loud in the room
It beats my time
Carries life round
My body
Rushes my blood to
Fill the heart with
Heat, with life,
The only thing alive
In the silence
In the wind. 
I await the dawn
The rosy spread
That denotes another
New day a new
World, a fresh start.
3 hours of heartbeat
Away.  I will stay.
