The universe exploded into light
And in an instant, my love for you formed;
Dark energy propelled it through the night
‘Midst matter black and cosmic clumps there torn.
A cosmic renaissance formed our first star,
Collapsing ‘neath the weight of love too strong,
Exploding in a supernova war
And in a pico-second, love was gone.
But unseen forces drew us back again,
Coalescing the ancient astral dust,
Expunging there that interstellar stain;
Uniting yet again that core of trust;
And love so fused, once more our star did shine,
A symbol bright, born at the edge of time.
