I told the stars about you.
But they already knew who you were.
You shine brighter than the rest ever did, simply by existing.
And yet, they still love you, just as much as I.
It’s hard not to love someone made of stardust.
the stars laugh at us
before we even exist –
keeping secrets in the sky
far away from here
fully aware that the light we see
is no longer there.
‘The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.’
– Carl Sagan
‘Love is a great master. It teaches us to be what we never were.’
