Chasing After Light
I’d chase after you at the speed of light,
but what’s the point?
You’re already ahead of me.
Instead I’ll pace my self,
continue to move forward,
knowing that at some point in time,
you’ll come across a mirror
and reflect upon it.
At which point,
I’ll still be traveling towards you.
With open arms and a smile on my face,
I’ll meet you a long the way.
