You were just a speck of stardust in my sky

floating, lingering, a faded memory I can’t deny,

the swirling galaxy in my head, my star from another universe.

It’s been hundreds of light years since JOY dawned on me

Didn’t notice you before as I’m too pre-occupied being captivated by CENTAURUS,

You were just there, one of the LIGHTS in my own constellation but I was too blind to see.


One day my life had a complete turn around

By just staring at your serene face takes me to the Heavens,

Like a LIGHT illuminating my path spreading good CHEER

Removing me from a dark hole of OBLIVION.

You’re like a NEBULA which left my heart amazed

And here I am standing right before my FUTURE,

ANDROMEDA is waiting for her ORION’s heart to awaken

For them to share eternity in a lost world that is yet to be discovered.


Your star and my star sometimes COLLIDE,

But your beam keeps on striking me even from a far

The fierce look in your eyes tells me something you can’t simply hide

Yes, you are drawn to my radiant ANGELIC glow…

DESTINY and space will let our SOULS meet time and again

In a thousand reincarnations I have seen your many faces…

There’s always something familiar about YOU anywhere we meet.


My DREAMs would take me sometimes to a far away planet in the MILKY WAY

METEORS and COMETS accompany me to the path leading again to you…

You’re a BEAUTIFUL mess of neon hues circling my mind like the rings of SATURN

The son of VENUS …

Yes, it’s always been YOU in a trillion lifetimes, I have been following YOU

My constellations will help me to tell YOU how PRECIOUS  you are, my ORION.
