Poem: Our Song

There’s thirty seconds to sunlight
And the sky is up alight
We’re sitting here inside
Staring in each other’s eyes

And I saw you
And you saw me
On the other side
You saw it too, you heard it

And this was our song
From the moment it started
We both sang along
To the beat, to the beat
Of our song

There were years left
On our clock
We thought decades we could pass

But the last verse,
The last sentence,
Marked the end

And we still sang along
To the beat, to the voice
Of our song
