Soon

— Nick Butterfield

I’ll set the clock ahead an hour

So I can see you sooner!

To find you,

I’ll turn pages upside down

  & remove the shiny

cover of a book I just read

  then open the book

  to search for you again.

 

At night,

I’ll look for you when my eyes are closed.

For what do I have in heaven but you?

To be over you is to understand:

until I see you soon,

there are no over

there is no when.
