Lorraine Goodison

You were born to be here,
And I at your side.
To explore the heavens,
To reach deep inside...
This is your destiny.

You revel in it
As you move like a dancer
Through its intricate dreams
And know peace and harmony
And hope.

Space is your home,
This starship your body,
You embrace its planets
And beautiful peoples.
Star child in motion.

Life and hope,
Both are entwined
In your soul, and so
Am I, as companion,
Brother and guardian.

You live by your instinct,
I by my laws.
But you have extended my life.
I thank you for that,
For we are as one,
And you rescued my soul.
