The Clock Strikes - Poem by Anders Lim

The clock strikes again
In some distant celestial setting
A bright silver-blue star
Ends its life with a majestic flash

The clock strikes again
Simultaneously, a million hearts
Beat in a faint contrast
As a signal of life

The clock strikes again
Beneath the ocean floors
Mother Earth cracks open
Sending sonic waves to shore

The clock strikes again
Within a dark forest
A daring wolf cries out
Head to the heavens

The clock strikes again
And again, and again,
Once more it strikes…

And with each strike
Only one thought
Resonates in this fragile mind
A single thought of you

Everything that has yet to come
Regardless its magnitude
Will cower in shame
Of that single thought

Its significance outweighs
Any celestial plans
Human thought
Earthly bounds
Nature’s beasts

I love you.
