If it’s a heart you’re looking for


If it’s a heart you’re looking for, the child cried, take mine.
I’ll grow another, and a better, and a bigger.
Then the child died.

And the child’s words came true:
I saw the sky that night. I saw the stars.
I saw the clouds. I saw the moon.

If it’s a heart you’re looking for, I cried, take mine!
I’ll grow another, and a better, and a bigger!
And then I died and became a child’s sky of blue.

This, too, is true:
That another, and a better, and a bigger heart,
Is here, inside of you.
