Counting Stars

If you lived forever,
Would you pick up every stone on the beach?
Skim them across the sea,
Then wait for them to return.

If you lived forever,
Would you fell every tree in the forest?
Fill the earth with seeds,
Then watch as they grow.

If you lived forever,
Would you summit every mountain?
Dip your hands in the clouds,
Then count every star.

If you were alone forever,
Would memories skim through your mind,
Never to return.

If you were alone forever,
Would our love be felled with time,
Never to grow again.

If you were the only one left,
Would you count every star,
Because the heavens were all you had.
