Heart Like a Rock

Sometimes
I hear it beating,
that steady rhythm
of coursing blood,
sung like a holy hymn.

Sometimes
I feel it retreating,
shrinking on the throne,
drinking from the well
that turns flesh to stone.

Only one cure
for a heart like a rock ~
smite it with Your rod
and let the water flow,
My Healer and My God.
