i want to live one thousand days
in the shadow of your statue,
in the wind that gets trapped in the arches of your feet,
the curve of your back, your hips.
i want to watch the sun make your eyes glow - green and flecks of gold
and to look at the stars through your outstretched fingers,
to imagine the tone and timbre of your voice.

i want to breath being into your body
and spend one thousand lifetimes
loving you in one thousand different ways.
i want to show you everything you have not seen:
snow above the tree line in the mountains,
the blossoms on the cherry trees,
the city, the sea, the waves.
