there is a transference that happens. We take the shape of
bursting stardusts and milky moons, the endless waves and foams
of ocean’s echoes, the purple on the asphalt after the rain.
We come to find you in different vessels, but somehow we know
each other all along like two lost friends separated by time and distance
yet time and distance couldn’t separate two souls.
We are the memories of laughter, mementos placed lovingly above your fireplace.
We are the tender stillness in the pauses, the here and now and evermore. We’re on
your minds and in your hearts and everywhere around, see
we do not end even when our vessels let us go.
We’re always here. We’ll always be.
