Be Still My Beating Heart

Be still my beating heart

Be still my beating heart,
For I can take no more,
No more hurts, no more pain,
Pain which comes shortly after the anguish,
Anguish over the sea of emotion before me.

Be still my beating heart,
For I know not how to swim,
Swimming is for the brave,
The brave who dear not the unknown,
The unknown, the yet to come, the unexpected.

Be still my beating heart,
Hold still my beating heart,
Hold steady while my brain wins,
Wins this battle of wits and smiles,
Smiles that make butterflies flutter in my belly.

Be still my beating heart,
While I clutch my belly in fear and anguish,
In fear of the untold happiness,
Happiness behind the ever after,
The ever after that never comes.

Be still my beating heart,
For you can take no more,
Stay still my beating heart,
While we cross this troubling sea of emotions,
Hold my brain, be still my beating heart.
