When It Comes From The Heart

"When It Comes From The Heart" —Zachary, 13

 

(For Denton A. Cooley, M.D.)

 

All the strides and all the struggles
All the valleys, all the hills
All the triumphs, all the sorrows
Dedication to your field

 

You're a hero to so many
All around the world you're known
You have changed the course of history
Made the world a better home

 

When it comes from the heart
It makes all the difference
You've spent a lifetime
Mending hearts

 

Your healing hands
Have made all the difference
All the lives you've saved
All the people you've touched

 

When we look back on the past
Most of us have some regrets
You should have none, you've succeeded
In the challenges you've met

 

You're a hero to so many
All around the world you're known
You have changed the course of history
Made the world a better home
Made the world a better home
When it comes from the heart

It makes all the difference
You've spent a lifetime
Mending hearts

 

Your healing hands

Have made all the difference
All the lives you've saved
All the people you've touched

 

When it comes from the heart

It makes all the difference
You've spent a lifetime
Mending hearts

 

Your healing hands

Have made all the difference
All the lives you've saved
All the people you've touched

 

All the world has a heartbeat

And you would surely know
That all you have done
Has helped the heartbeat to grow
