Somewhere in Time
Somewhere in time I was meant to have you
to paint myself on the contour of your body
in shades of light and darkness,
between ecstasy of life and the sadness
decorating your eyes.
Somewhere in time I was meant to love you
to encrust myself deep in your bones
fusing my desires underneath your skin
lost in body and soul or someplace between
the oceans of your mouth and the skies.
Somewhere in time I was meant to find you
to stumble graciously into your dreams
planting smiles in early spring
harvesting kisses in fall making you mine
for long before I already knew
I was meant to have you somewhere in time.
“And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.”
― Kiersten White, The Chaos of Stars
