Carrying a detailed report to its heart
Light travels alone in space to find you.
It tries its best at the marathon
and arrives a million years late.
You are a fossil by then
having a lot of catching up to do.
It's not that you were waiting for any message
You never knew that it was posted.
Anyway, let me tell you
The sky was lit up like a thousand suns
with the Christmas gift from far away.
It was good, you just missed it.
