Heart Song

Heart Song 

Once upon a time there was a great man who married the woman of his 

dreams. With their love, they created a little girl. She was a bright and 

cheerful little girl and the great man loved her very much. 

When she was very little, he would pick her up, hum a tune and dance 

with her around the room, and he would tell her, "I love you, little girl." 

When the little girl was growing up, the great man would hug her and 

tell her, "I love you, little girl." The little girl would pout and say, "I'm 

not a little girl anymore." Then the man would laugh and say, "But to 

me, you'll always be my little girl." 

The little girl who-was-not-little-anymore left her home and went into 

the world. As she learned more about herself, she learned more about 

the man. She saw that he truly was great and strong, for now she 

recognized his strengths. One of his strengths was his ability to express 

his love to his family. It didn't matter where she went in the world, the 

man would call her and say, "I love you, little girl." 

The day came when the little girl who-was-not-little-anymore received a 

phone call. The great man was damaged. 

He had had a stroke. He was aphasic, they explained to the girl. He 

couldn't talk anymore and they weren't sure that he could understand the 

words spoken to him. He could no longer smile, laugh, walk, hug, dance 

or tell the little girl who-was-not-littie-anymore that he loved her. 

And so she went to the side of the great man. When she walked into the 

room and saw him, he looked small and not strong at all. He looked at 

her and tried to speak, but he could not. 

The little girl did the only thing she could do. She climbed up on the bed 

next to the great man. Tears ran from both of their eyes and she drew 

her arms around the useless shoulders of her father. 

Her head on his chest, she thought of many things. She remembered the 

wonderful times together and how she had always felt protected and 

cherished by the great man. She felt grief for the loss she was to endure, 

the words of love that had comforted her. 

And then she heard from within the man, the beat of his heart. The heart 

where the music and the words had always lived. The heart beat on, 

steadily unconcerned about the damage to the rest of the body. And 

while she rested there, the magic happened. She heard what she needed 

to hear. 

His heart beat out the words that his mouth could no longer say. 

I love you I love you I love you Little girl Little girl Little girl 

And she was comforted.
