Would everyone see the stars as she saw them?
Would others experience the joy that she experienced
differently than she did?
She caressed the creature lying beside her
and tried to be aware of her happiness.
She knew it wouldn't last
but what meaning does time have
for one who is happy?
And so she dreamt on...
In his dreams he had saved the world with her,
survived a war and a nuclear disaster
and at one point he stood with her
at the cradle of a new beginning for mankind.
He knew that one day he would meet her
in the real world and so it was.
In his dreams she was blond
and here he was sitting next to a brunette.
And yet is was her.
They exchanged looks and words
but never more than that.
