Hope & Joy

Inside our heart
we have another heart,
not bigger or better, just another,
and another within that.
Just in case.

Each springs forward
to fill the void when, not if,
the first one breaks,  
when hope confronts mistakes,
when joy withers and fades.
And so on.
But then, unannounced, 
the next heart appears.  
Hope and joy return.
