I await an encounter.
I swished around an empty ocean full of nothing but no meaning,
wanted to venture to the point where our paths cross, but with no
such luck. But
you did come, eventually, and
oh, how the world has been enlightened by the brilliance you bring to the world.
How different you are from me, who swims
this pure water, being a creature that roams the grounds above.
How different you are from me, who only knows the clear
blue water surrounding me, being a creature that loves the faded green on the ground.
Nevertheless, let us meet in
the room where pearls that glisten in the chalcedony sea meet with
the flowers in the little emerald forest, where our lives can cross paths too.
And time is beautiful,
connecting me to you every day.
It seems to stop at the sight of you, and yet
it is what says goodbye too quickly, soon bringing the time to part,
as the our friend sails west and darkness creeps in.
And… Soon we will reach the moment
to venture and reach towards the highest of the mountain,
and the deepest of the ocean, but
we’re afraid to go further.
Afraid that as time passes, our times will too.
