Song of the Absolute

I am the master of the light,
Carrier of galaxies and stars,
Older than ancient Time itself,
My home, the infinite dark;

Life a footnote to eternity,
Death not even in the book,
Love, a meantime thing,
Existence incapable of wrong;

Height beyond height,
Depth beyond depth,
Silent my well
In the center of yourself.
