Jewish Prayers From the Heart and Pen of Alden Solovy

This Man’s Heartbeat

Alden on his triycle (circa 1960).

Another prayer in my series for men, inspired by my work with The ManKind Project. Here are links to two of more of my prayers for and about men: “The Descent” and “This Man.”

This Man’s Heartbeat
Let my heart beat
Gentle as a brook,
Gentle as a boy,
Seeing the world with wonder.

Let my heart beat
Strong as the tide,
Strong as a man,
Living these days with passion.

Let love flow through my veins,
Grace and yearning,
Humility and awe,
Kindness and power,
The melody of love,
The harmony of joy,
A baseline of truth,
The tempo of life.

Let my heart beat,
Gentle as a brook
Strong as the tide,
Gentle as a boy,
Strong as a man,
Seeing the world with wonder,
Living these days with passion.
