If I were able, I would put the universe in my pocket
and bring it out when I need to remember
that I am part of something bigger than I know.
If time allowed, I would get lost in the empty space
between my thumbs as I hitchhike from galaxy to galaxy.
If it didn’t slip between my fingers,
I would scoop out the stardust and toss it asunder
so I could dance amidst moonlight and constellations.
If my eyes would let me, I would stare in wonder at the treasures
that swirled around me like my most perfect dreams.
If words existed, I would name the stars
for the way they make my eyes sparkle
and I’d share those names with you every time I saw you.
If you would let me, I would take you with me to every corner
of every universe so you don’t have to feel alone.
If I were able, I would hold the universe within my pocket
to help you see that this moment is just your beginning.
