So Long

We’ve been in this maze for so long
But we are not lost
Life is long and the maze is winding
The goal’s not the end
It’s the route you take to reach it.

I’d been walking alone for so long
I was not lonely
Others beckoned me to follow them
Their paths unenticing
Until I ran into you walking my way.

We pick the same path and I pause
To look back
At the turns we have taken together
And forward
At the paths I could take on my own

If I decided to say “So long.”

An Ending

In the end, there was only a flooded planet and dying star.

“It was good,” the sun sank towards the sea, her former inferno reduced to a flame in the clouds.

“Perfect,” the sea rose to meet her. She was doused and the sea froze.

Across the universe: a spark, a droplet, a beginning.
