how to wait

The air is calm and the night arrives,

A Summer hour rolls into the next,

it is quiet, warm, 

but you might hug yourself from time to time,

and the stars hang above.

The whole sky above you, it seems that way,

from this perspective, 

but we are floating, in a vast expanse, 

The closest thing to us is the moon, 

everything else is our creation,

sattelites that track every mile, every tilt, 

my slow movement through space and time.

To wait an eternity, one must forget?
