Can you feel the rhythm of Fate, a birthday poem for @LisaNEdwards by Tracy Diane Miller

In sync with a heartbeat,
But how can that be?
The rhythm of Fate,
A sound that guides me,
The whispers of destiny,
The allure of green eyes,
For Nikki Kirkpatrick,
Her life is full of surprise,
Like the free will of the butterfly,
She is unable to chase,
Like the seed of the sunflower,
With sprinkles of grace,
Can you feel the rhythm of Fate?
As Time takes your hand?
Then stop to listen with your heart,
Because I know you’ll understand,
Even with the most carefully constructed map,
The road so far will be paved with tears,
Can you feel the rhythm of Fate?
If so, may it quiet your fears.
You can’t fight Fate,
Life’s scars you earn,
For even in pain,
That’s how you grow and learn.
