I made stardust. Rather, we made it together,
We mixed the ashes of our ties,
Along with time-the famous healer,
We simply let go.
The ashes divided, broke into pieces
So minute, so tiny, so little,
That they became power
And magic, they became our healer
The goodbye didn’t hurt anymore,
It simply existed in the universe
Like the stardust we left behind,
Maybe that’s what destiny made of us-
Two souls, too far away yet united with magic.
