I am outside of time

Crying out, “My baby!”

Let me suffer it all

For her

But I can only

Observe from the opposite side

Running lateral to her

And I meet her at the altitude

Directly across

As close as I can be

She dodged a bullet

And so did he

Two soul remnants

Twins in their survival

I can only

Gaze upon their brightness

From afar

Amazed and befuddled

By Life’s mysteries
