not knowing

and i found your eyes
searching the night sky
speckled drops of ancient light

and i set my course
by their glow

and the texture of your skin
opened doors to other worlds
closed the distance between stars

and allowed us to reach farther
than ever before

who will find us
buried here
beneath the linen
beneath the clouds
beneath it all

who will find us
out there
chasing each breath
but never catching

and when i whisper
i’ll only use those sacred, silent words
to tell you it will be ok
to tell you we can start the journey
not knowing
where we’ll go
