and then you came
and took
my heart
into your care

how shriveled it was
broken and blue
frayed at the edges
and patched, more than once

you took it
with careful hands
and did not shy away
from its battered look
but trickled
the sweet liquid
of patience
onto its rough surface
and watched it
slowly but surely
come alive again

beat
for
beat.
