You are 13.8 billion years away
Stars have come and gone
Since I last saw you.
The big bang saw the nativity of our universe
And I have been waiting that long to see you again.
Time is ticking the stars away
Time is tediously erasing its memory of us and all that came before.
But I defy time and atoms and the definitive click of the quantum clock
And demand that you and I will meet again
I demand once again
That fingers touch fingers
That lips touch lips
That hugs will embrace hugs
And we will see each other again.
