I’m your orbiter
beyond the sky and stars
beyond time itself
I’ve always been here
waiting for you to come back home
I’ll keep the dust away, because I know it makes you sneeze
I’ll set the table one more time, and make sure your bed stays smelling fresh.
I know how much you love the feeling of a clean bed.
and I’ll play your song one more time
echoing it through all of space itself
crying out for its lover
a single moment
and everything stands still
the dust settling again
and I’m back to work
bracing my heart, for the impact of your arrival
and making sure, the dust never sits too long.
