Taking Things to Heart

The heart is the most important muscle in the body
Without its daily effort, life cannot exist
Its amazement and wonder cannot be spoken of enough
It pumps blood that travels the veins and arteries
Reaching the brain so we can think; reaching our toes so we can dance
When the heart is weak, every ounce of the body suffers
And eventually, if the heart becomes weak enough, life stops
The actions of one person’s heart can change entire families
Entire generations – co-workers, communities, and the world
Heart transplants reset one person’s time at the cost of another’s
But sometimes, families of transplant recipients have met and bonded for life
All body systems are important for life to exist
But, none so great than that of the heart
Your heart truly does beat for a purpose
To grant you the opportunity to live each day to the fullest
And fulfill the hopes and dreams you are destined to live
