Your Healing Heart

By Ed Foreman

Your healing heart will make you strong
Building lungs to last you long…

A cardiac arrest…
Can be a wake-up test!

You’ll smile from inside…out,
Friends will wonder what you’re about!

You’ll laugh ‘n love…and live more too,
Your healing heart will make you new

* * *

Right things are easy to eat and drink
No need to even stop and think!

No longer lying on the couch watching T.V.
You’re enjoying family, friends ‘n better things to see!

There’s a new day breaking bright and clear
WOW! What new adventures…and sounds you hear!

You’ll laugh ‘n love…and live more too,
Your healing heart will make you new

* * *

Make your rehab fun…
Walking’s good, no need to run.

Thank the doctors ‘n your nurses, too
They know what’s best for you.

Take your meds as prescribed
‘n booze ain’t to be imbibed!

You’ll laugh ‘n love…and live more too,
Your healing heart will make you new.

* * *

You’ll skip and smile…
You’ll go the extra mile.

You’ll go from blue to pink…
“Somethin’s up,” your friends will think.

The birds will chirp ‘n tweet and sing
Oh, what a Joy life does bring!

You’ll laugh ‘n love…and live more too,
Your healing heart will make you new.

The “price is high,” you say…
But what’s it worth to live another day?

Life’s too short to fret ‘n fume ‘n fuss
Relax, unwind and enjoy happy times here with us.

Letting go of things that cause worry and stress
Helps you pass life’s wellness test.

You’ll laugh ‘n love…and live more too,
Your healing heart will make you new.

* * *

Every day’s the time to be “TERRIFIC”
Expect goood things…’n be specific!

What you think, good or bad, sick or well
Your environment soon will tell.

Life is no surprise…
You get what you energize!

You’ll laugh ‘n love…and live more too,
Your healing heart will make you new!

    Ed,

    I love “Your Healing Heart”, thank you for sharing. I will share it with many and pray they will make the decision to do the same. As I read it for the third time it dawned on me. This is not only for those who have had a medical challenge that has resulted in their heart not working as well as necessary. It also can apply to those who have had a broken heart due to the death of a loved one or perhaps the heart break suffered as the result of an unrequited love.

    Thank you,

    Tommy Jean
