I had my eyes closed when I saw it, infinite space
darkness so complete in the distance, we were points of light
and we were spinning together, the same orbit, the same galaxy.
Time was just beginning to burst into being
which means it had not existed until we dreamed it so. But we did.
We do not now exist, not together anyway. It is good, better
that way, We were better at the beginning of time
than we could ever be so many billions of light years
along the path, and the tears and laughter we’ve traversed since then.
If I knew you then I will know you again. I can only hope
there will be joy between us when we meet at some other cross section of Time,
deep in darkness, pinpricks of light dancing into eternity.
