ashes to ashes

like statues and ancient oaks, we’ll weather the storm
standing defiant against the trials of time
and hand in hand we’ll stroll towards the darkness
with decades of devotion to shelter our hearts
and countless milennia of love to sustain us

we are infinite- born in the stomachs of ten thousand stars
and we live to die and evaporate once more
we are everything and nothing and a little bit something
eternally perplexed by our own paradoxical existence
created in limitless space then confined to limited space
born in the sky then tethered to the ground
so we look to the stars as the birds watch the clouds
we are homesick and yet don’t know where home can be found

so the closest we come is by finding Valhalla
in the ones who were formed in the same constellations
we make love in the places where galaxies meet
and collide like the atoms in the core of the sun
like ashes to ashes, forever as one
