Like strengthening an unused muscle
atrophed, thin, sagging and sad.
Isolating it, bringing it to mind and then
the work begins.
With pain and strain
With such joy and delight
Discovering new range
Discovering new flight.
The Heart roars and welcomes the action
cries and protests
Fatigued from the effort.
But most of all,
Warmth where before there was none.
Now there is Heart. Now there is Heart
