Love’s progress does not wait
For Elegies or romantic verse
The right true end of love is
Carried over, in the next generation
For how long, whose to say?
Until our children are born immortal
Until our machines talk back to us?
By our new nature, from planets
Harvesting stars, equally at peace
Love’s progress no longer rests
In the story between a ‘you and I’
Love is a thing for society
To share like virtue, soft and free
Perfection to unite, and value more
Than gold, more than wealthy
Or any physical kind of security
Although we see the celestial bodies move
Love and time have their own marriage
These swelling lips that sing of passion
And these serene hearts that dance
For a brief lifetime, that went too fast?
