Cosmic Love Story

When matter scattered into night
and burst alive with starry light
upon the dawn of time and space,
we were predestined to embrace

but planets had to form and spin
and galaxies would yet begin
some billion brilliant years away,
preparing us for love today:

two soul mates of eternity.
