You call it 23 hours
the past day we spent together.
I call it a lifetime.
That is how our moments feel.
These relative things.
Do I have the courage to live them?
Lives that come, go, and pass.
But I plan to see you again for
O spirit still spinning in my heart
The stars have left us spinning
I can’t reach your lips.
Your eyes always celebrate Spring
in their blue windows
and still see sadness in the world.
But living here, now.
