When You Realize

Life is more than the heartbeat in your chest, 
The way you were raised,
The way you talk,
Even the way you dress.

Life is more than just a heartbeat in your chest,
It's what you see,
How you move
How you learn to impress.

Life is more than just a heartbeat in your chest,
It's when you rise, 
When you run,
When you lay down and rest.

That's when you realize that you are blessed,
When your heart keeps beating in your chest.
