The atria and the ventricles
The arteries and the veins
Don’t bother me an infinitesimal bit
I’d choose to rip open my heart and offer to you
In a heartbeat.

The arduous path uphill and

Tough rowing against current

Don’t frighten me one wee bit

I’d choose you for partner-in-arms

In a heartbeat.

 

The flowery path of love and

Onerous trudge of life’s travails

Don’t tire me even a little bit

I’d choose you for fellow traveller

In a heartbeat.

 

Those fluttering doe eyes and

Smiling dimples on the cheeks

Don’t deter me a small bit

I’d fall in love with you for eternity

In a heartbeat.

 

Those long dark tresses and

Silken shining velvet skin

Don’t push me away a little bit

I’d choose to caress them my whole life

In a heartbeat.

 

All the exciting moments and

The tempestuous testing times

Don’t daunt me a minute bit

I’d choose to shrink them into my heart

In a heartbeat.

 

Wading through dark travails and

Wallowing through sinister designs of life

Don’t scare me one tiny bit

I’d choose you as the beacon of my life

In a heartbeat.

 

The atria and the ventricles

The arteries and the veins

Don’t bother me an infinitesimal bit

I’d choose to rip open my heart and offer to you

In a heartbeat.
