i may meet you in every universe,
in every timeline.

and all of our "i love you"s may come out of our chapped mouths like crushed stars,
and all of our goodbyes may break galaxies.

but you and i will meet in every universe,
in every timeline.
and if, in this one, you were too shy to hold my hand,
in the next, you won't ever let go.

if, in this one, our broken glances and our limbs, intertwined, are too much for you to bear,
in the next, our eyes will meet at the same time, and our fingers will never unwind.

i will meet you in another universe, another lifetime,
if this one wasn't enough.
