My ears, always on,
always on, get some
rest this midnight hour.
As day noises subside,
my alert ears relax and
put their feet up. They
gulp in the luxurious,
peaceful quiet, and
are restored. Tomorrow,
they will be on duty
again, but just this minute
they let their guard down and
I can suddenly hear my
own heart speak.
