I remember, I remember

The bright stars

The dark night

How we flew together

Without fear

Into the violet spaces between the stars

Over the midnight blue mountains

From one cluster of brightness to another

To the end of the galaxy

And how you pointed your finger

Across a black desert of empty space

To other galaxies

To other stars

To the souls of other children

Flying between

I remember, I remember

How you showed me

The star that is our home

How we sat together

In an umbrella of brilliant light

How we both became invisible

Unravelling from within

My dark shell dismantled

Your bright wings revealed

We were one.
