" . . . soon your heart will be repaired."

On this Valentine’s Day, remember why you fell in love, and think about what you can do to stay there.

But, it’s important to keep your heart happy too, both you and your loved one, and your family.

And sometimes that takes professional help.

Here is a poem for those who are having or facing the prospect of heart surgery. And thank your health care professionals, who are highly trained and caring people!


A Heart That Sings

In a world that sometimes seems

intent on stealing biggest dreams–

that takes those things we know are right

and puts them somewhere out of sight–

we still find hope in little things:

a child’s smile; a wagging tail;

an artist’s eye; a heart that sings.

These are things we know are real,

that we can see and hear and feel;

these are things that we can sense,

that touch our hearts in present tense.


But there are times we must believe

in things so hard to conceive:

anesthesia; lung machine;

Life now tied to things unseen–

surgeon’s hand; nurse’s skill;

knowledge; know-how; commitment; will;

God and faith and our good health;

and most of all to Life itself.


But you are ready; you’re prepared;

soon your heart will be repaired.

And when you wake up from this rest,

you’ll feel the rhythm in your chest–

subtle, perfect and oh so strong,

your heart now singing Life’s best song,

with hope restored in biggest things:

an active life; a family’s love;

a curious mind; a heart that sings.

Now you’re back where you belong.
