A universe of bursting mass,
And circling, cycling lives and deaths:
Repeating forms, forever on,
All came to stop that rainy day.
Confetti scattered, Solent salt,
Balloons and cakes and Tennyson:
I’ve never been as scared or proud.
Your strength and beauty linked in gold.
The planet span about our day:
Our photos placed that point in time.
The sun would never set again.
Our memory had merged as dreams.
And arm in arm we took those steps,
Then floated through the ocean breeze.
The Isle of Wight where we heard Do You Realize??? by The Flaming Lips.
