Change of Heart

When I told my seven year old

the story of Ray,

my friend with a hole

in his heart

he didn’t ask

how deep

how long

how bad

He only asked,

“If you get a new heart

do you forget who

you love?”

  2. How true and to the point is that? Right on the money.You can replace your heart but how do you replace your love?
