If I could get a fix on you,
If I could navigate the void­—
But star-crossed pilots can’t triangulate
By constellations long destroyed.

And now the wind has changed,
And you have taken to the skies—
Gravity can’t hold you anymore.
I knew the day would come
From the remoteness in your eyes,
And from the colours that you wore.

I always knew you were a beautiful explosion,
Blazing into space.
Glanced off the atmosphere,
Shocked breathless, but alive—
Then gone without a trace.

If I could get a word to you,
If I could tune in to the shift—
But nothing’s familiar since the shockwave hit
And set the frequencies adrift.

Now the light has changed,
can’t find you out there anymore—
Ancient as a distant star.
Time, it blasts away the dazzling disguise,
And shows you only as you are.

I always knew you were a beautiful explosion,
Blazing into space—
Smashed through the atmosphere,
shocked breathless but alive,
Then gone without a trace.
