Love's Heart Beat

I lay my head on your bosom
  and hear the steady, strong beat of your heart:
The beat of your love
  a love nurtured in time and birth
  a deep, abiding love.
I hear your steady, strong heart beat
  and it fills my life:
With the reassurance of your life
  a life entwined with mine,
  distinct but eternally bound together.
I hear your heartbeat, steady and strong
  in tune with the Universe:
I ride the beat of your heart
  through the cosmos,
  my soul lying on its bosom.
I hear Your divine heart beat through all Creation
  the beat of imperishable love:
We are embraced in its steady, strong beat
  never failing,
  always with us.
