That night when we danced
With every inhale of breath
The atoms of our bodies expanded up and out into the universe
And with every exhale we came back together again
We had always known that we came from the starry atoms above us
But we had never felt it quite as strongly as we did
In that moment when we danced
So whole and perfectly formed
We were at one with everything
We just flowed
We were so vast
“We are stardust” you said
“Every atom of our bodies was born from the fiery core of a star”
I looked into your sea blue eyes
And thought.. He is right. There is a whole universe in there.
We were adrift through space
We traveled past nebulas and trillions of stars
Hues of brilliant pinks, oranges and blues
The most beautiful colours we had ever seen.
And it didn’t matter that we would part ways tomorrow
Because this moment was forever imprinted on my soul
And even though we will one day transcend the earth
Love can never die.
