The Heart

The heart was filled with loved ones:

Family, husband, and children.
There was no more room for others.
Then news of a grandchild is announced…
But how can the heart hold another?

The child is born
And touches your heart.
But how can that be?
There is no more room for others.
Do the loved ones move over?
Or does the heart grow bigger?

Because then it happens…
The new love grows and grows
More and more each day
For this beautiful, loving creature.

The heart does have more room for others.

Jo-Ann Holzschuh (Nani)
