Analysis of Timeless



Being with you
Is as if I were
A drop of water
Flung into the pools of time.

Becoming one
With my new home
And never seeing
The beginning or end of myself.

The time passes
Moving only the surface
For brief intervals
Pulling on the very fabric of our lives

Become one with me in this ocean
And never let me see the flaws
That distinguish us from one another.
