I measure time by thought of you.

I measure space in breath with you.

I measure imagined moments to be true.

Who are you? You are everyone I love. Every thing I see. 

You are dancing. You are trees. You are the mountain sun setting in me. You are the love that I seek. You are my family. You are memories. You are my hopes. My work. My teeth.

There is no distance between us in my dreams. Distance orbits for others to see. I am you. Measure me.
