Eternity - Poem by Alexander Thomas

Time dropping away like snow,
Falling through clouds,
Melting away to water,
Stretching further than waves,
Rolling on and on in a boundless ocean,
Deeper than the darkest dark,
Without form, without meaning,
Nothing to hold onto,
Nameless moments in a nameless void.

Until there was you

Like whispers in the dark,
Reflecting from the other side of the mirror,
From the blazing light of transcendent being,
There you were.

Somewhere in the flash,
You appeared from gold,
More exquisite than handfuls of diamonds,
Rarer than lost time,
You were and then you were not,
But you always will be,
In the moment you were the spark that lit the fire of time,
Now my eyes are open,
And my heart sings,
I know the light that is love.

Beyond the threshold,
Beyond time,
Beyond the border of beyond,
Your memory will remain as an echo in infinity,
The reverberating sound of love,
A vision of hope,
Mystifying beauty,
A treasure divine.

Long past the shadow of who we were,
Beyond the fading light,
All would have been lost in desolation,
Waste without you as a witness.

All are born and swallowed within the cosmic fire,
But nothing other can make the flames rise higher,
From the seed of life to the light of love aspire,
To hold all in the moment is an eternity to desire.
