her heart

i listened
to her heart today
to the sound of her heart
pounding relentlessly inside of her chest
fighting to get onto the page

i listened
to her heart today
to the sound of her soul
rising up from the depths of her being
falling hard onto the page

i listened
to her heart today
to the sound of her dreams
casting aside the chains of compromise
running free onto the page

i listened in awe
to her heart today

  1. this poem brought tears my eyes jeff, they say behind every great man is a great woman, and in many ways, i feel that you and rocky work this theory into its own special meaning. i think, from my vague knowledge, that your support for one another is both beautiful and unique in todays society! thank you for being such an important part and driving fire for MFFO!

  2. I am so convinced that Rocky already knows the answer – she will listen to her heart and will know exactly what to do. I listened to her heart as well and know how tough it may be for as well. You have an awesome woman in your hands, and she is a lucky one as well.
    Please give your mom a big kiss from me (that’s what we Latins do), I’m sure she is really enjoying the time with her grandkids.
