It is as if the heart is a radio playing a love song. It reflects of an intimate moment between lovers where one is serenaded by the heart of the other. The heart speaks for his owner who is unable to out into words what is his true feelings and desire.
The heart shares the vows it will keep forever through song that only his true love can hear. Unspoken just felt through rhythm.
Metaphorically, the "rest in piece" is where the heart has reached death in love and has truly reached the end of his life's journey knowing now that it can rest in peaceful love for eternity because true love is found.

Heart Song


Gently, on my chest, you lay your head—

Suddenly the music starts—

And I could feel you smile.

Overcome with joy, you lay there in peace

Listening to every word from my heart to you—

He who could never lie—

Would tell you in a song, words I could not

In every verse, a new revelation, a greater love

Pure sounds of joyfulness,  

Echoes of a wild loving beast

Ready to be tamed by only one thing; your love—

An unrehearsed song of love for your ears, for your heart

Promises of never ending love—promises to always keep

Even when we fail to see, and

Strength to hold us when weakness invades—

With every running second, the music intensifies

As does your touch and then silence—

My heart skips a beat while over your head—I rest in peace.
