We were born against the formless black,

as tiny sparks among the stars.

Weightless beings birthed from ash and dust

of cosmic rays and golden bars.


I felt you there in space,

a beaming soul which brimmed with light.

You bubbled over endlessly

and sprinkled fire in my eyes.


I sang along to symphonies

orchestrated by your heart,

an unborn sun I basked beside,

as the pulsing slowly sparked.


I know you watched me dancing,

Swaying there beside your glow.

You smiled and heard my siren's call

from deep inside your shadow.


Of course, you don't remember.

Blood and bones made you forget.

That's the reason why I stuffed my moonbeams

into a body that doesn't fit.


Yes, I followed you

into this cold and bitter place,

a world where I can't feel the heat

of your glow upon my face.


I thought I'd that I'd messed up, 

that I'd lost you to the void.

I thought the darkness here

would kill me until I heard your voice.


And now I'm here to wake you,

to remind you of your soul.

That radiant, effulgent fire

you're hiding deep inside the hollow.


My eyes can see beneath those bones

You marked them long ago

and made me promise to

remind you of your wisdom should it go.


So awaken brilliant sun,

show this world of night your dawn.

Melt this icy land of darkness

and lighten it with warmth.


And when you're done with shining,

when you're ready for the stars,

I'll hang beside you brightly

in the void that once was ours.
