All I Need

All I Need is my heart

But oh, much more

Than for my own life


I need my heart

To care for others

To love the unlovable

To help the incapable

To understand what is confused


All I need is my heart

To know I am alive

To know I have purpose

To know I can love


My heart is what I need

To allow others to survive

To allow others to love

To allow others to live


A heart is what I need

To allow others to know

That they too have a heart

That others need
