It’s All Relative

Spanning eons of transformation

I’ve witnessed the birth of civilizations

And their eventual demise

I am the heartbeat of the universe


I have power over night and day

The sun and moon dance to my rhythm

Stars watch my every move

Seasons do my bidding

The tides sing my daily song


I play in your mind

Signing my name on every memory

I sit with you each day

And count your heartbeats


I am the beginning and the end

You know me intimately,

Yet you cannot touch me.


I am in the eyes of the beholder

And the grantor of wishes

I am the writer of destiny

Synchronicity dances to my beat


You feel me in the quiet of your mind

We will meet one day at sunset

    Love it. The only thing we really own, but have no savings accounts for the future, nor left overs from the past. 😀

    This poem seems like an ode to all that is precious and tender. I stayed with the last two lines for a while, letting all the images sink in. Feeling nurtured and gently held.
