What is a milestone to me,
But a rock tossed carelessly into the early stream of life
That stops it for a precious minute
And lets me touch, really touch it.
Ooh, I didn’t know it could tingle you like that, did you ?
I peel layers of celebratory brocade and silk
And I dive
Should it really pour life into me, I am too alive already.
I don’t know, I dive
And you, you just watch me from the surface
Do I look pretty ?
I dive deeper and look, rock bottom
Sweetheart, It’s comfortable here, join me
And you take my hand and join me there
Alright, our minute is almost up
I love you! I know, you say. Ah this is good.
We swim back to the surface and I don my brocade and silk
The stream of life finally pushes the rock aside
And the minute passes by.
Our precious minute.
