Happy birth

it took some time to
flourish to this point
while time and space team up
to incorporated their knowledge

birds still flying over
high blue skies
my horizon’s getting near
for I am on the road, and now

stand still and look around
myself – a wonder, just like you
amazingly impressive, we below -no,
in between- a trillion stars (and more)

so, what the hell I’m doing here?
cause I should be with you, the other part of me
the rebirth of the past, inseminating future
life is where it’s all about!

sun is getting red..
already feel the outlines of your hands
meanwhile.. I can hear – cannot see sharp
hearts conduct the silent glittering
I look at.. there! the bridge to you and..
close my eyes.. my words step slowly on dry land
because.. it seems.. it dreams just all of us. in mirrors
rendez vous, you know.. without disturbing sleep
..here are my hands.. and there are yours – the sun is setting
bridge gets tangible.. just careful – passable
hey, come along, step on it now – but stay asleep and walk..
will meet you soon.. will come..  this night together
till the early morn’

When do you believe it is, it was, will come,
the past, the future and the day;
that omnipresent “now”, that hunts us at the tail?

Do I already carry it, the time, the very moment?
If so, tell me why I cannot find the patience to forsee
the needs of you to come, the needs of me to be

when the sun sank in her corner and the moon became my shadow
– a point in time where she will never re-appear (they say) –
I won’t allow my night to see that day that only rises when I will turn around
and wait, and wait, and wait, and wait until our world will bring me home
she will not disappear again that day, on top of us the sun, as long as we walk
side by side
