    She turned slowly toward him,
    cupping his face
    within her trembling hands,
    holding him tightly, lovingly…
    her brother, her lover,
    more– so much more, than love
    as our world circus perceives love–
    This two people had been together
    since they were children…
    they were destined…
    predestined, to meet one day
    then part and die a little–
    But still…
    Still their meeting is beyond
    time and space or power to reckon.
    They have known each other since
    they were children–
    They will always have a song together
    a song they heard one day
    standing on their balcony…
    ("To dream the impossible dream")
    the only home they will ever
    know together, a hallowed place
    in space.
