That I May Hold Once More

Stretching out for endless miles,   † † † † † † † †  
the road whispers my desires. † † † † † † † † † †  
I follow to the world's end, † † † † † † † † † †  
I follow on the wings of fate † † † † † †
†† † † † † † † † † †  
Drawn as if against my will, † † † † † † † † † †  
my first steps in quivering fear, † † † † † † † † † †  
I race the heavens,† † † † † † † † † †  
seeking to catch the sun,
faster and faster still, † † † † † † † † † †  
until speed blurs all I know† †  
†† † † †† † † † † † † † † †  
Time turns inside out,† † † † † † † † † †  
the clock of heaven breaking, † † † † † † † † † †  
cities fall and are remade, † † † † † † † † † † †
only to fall once again † † † † † †
†† † † † † † † † † †  
Traversing eons, † † † † † † † † † †  
I see suns die, † † † † † † † † † †  
and galaxies born, † † † † † † † † † †  
gathering stars in the palms of my hands, † † † † † † † † † †  
I hold the beating heart of the sun † † † † † †
†† † † † † † † † † †  
My humanity slips away, † † † † † † † † †  
I become one with the cosmic expanse, † † † † † † † † † †  
losing the last tattered shreds of me, † † † † † † † † † †  
light becomes my blood, † † † † † † † † † †  
and gravity my bones † † † † † †
†† † † † † † † † † †  
Until finally... † † † † † † † † † †  
solace and forgetfulness, † † † † † † † † † †  
as the pain of her leaving fades away, † † † † † † † † † †  
that I may hold once more, † † † † † † † † † †  
the memory of love that never died
