Sea of Tranquility by Bob Paris

You ask through rolling tears of both joy and loss
Does time exist at all these single millisecond jolts
And I respond that I will tell you in a moment
Because I’ll be that much older and hopefully
Wise against a tide that pulls me toward the
Sea of Tranquility
There upon that moon which has followed me and you
And all of us bound together
Throughout each breath and every heartbeat and prayer
Thousand upon million upon infinity
So that we might greet this New Blossomed Year
With a hope that
Love shadows each day with brilliantine lumens
That comfort strokes each nighttime dreamscape even in day
With gentle rocking pulse and lips pressed against the odds
Ahead around against and before and tomorrow and always
