One heartbeat to the next

you're capable of more than you know
your power as infinite as time
and penetrating like the winds
that stroke the trees at night

your dreams are more than just that
they're the places your soul has traveled to
they're its lessons
its struggles
and its reality
your passions are its air
they're your soul's destiny
and its journey

so reach for the sky
dream of peace
beyond your grandest imagination

let your fears fly away
to find their place in this universe
you need not wear their heaviness on your skin
on your lips
on your very essence

you're already naked in this world
in this time
in this life
beacause your next love
your next hunger
you next laughter
and even your next tear
may never come

after all life in only a string on moments

one heartbeat to the next
one heartbeat to the next

let you fears fly away
to find their place in this universe
and reach for the sky

one heartbeat to the next
one heartbeat to the next
