My Heart

My Heart by Tedi Tuttle Wixom 4/29/99, transcribed 2/28/12

My heart pumps gallons of blood
Throughout my entire body every day.
The blood is flowing, receiving oxygen.
It goes and flows on and on
Giving life, keeping me alive.

Have I ever said, “Thank you,”
To God for this miracle?

Today, I say, “Thank you
For all the intricate things
I don’t comprehend and yet,
I continue breathing
Without thinking about my breathing
In and out, in and out
With my heart pumping,
Whooshing the blood along,
     Along it’s way.”
