Together we were
together we will be
the transition in between
nothing but a journey
from illusion to illusion
from one dream to the other

In my sojourn
temporary and illusory
met many
called them mine
people came and moved away
relationships cultivated and endured
but what remains is you and me
the only relationship
that is beyond space and time

The sun that shines
the moon that soothes
the flower that blossoms
the stream that flows
the people and things
possessions, feelings and emotions
i call mine
love and infatuation, tears and smile
i endure and relish
the whole cosmic universe, still a mystery
are but limited
subject to space, causation and time

But you and i are together
in the lap of each other
when there was no time
we will be with each other
when there will be no time
our relationship is beyond all variables, independent of everything i see and feel and what lies beyond

    In the face of the sanguineness of the narrator about the immortal nature of love one can only pray that his hopes come true
