"Eternity Cannot Stop Laughing"

Now that time has wrapped itself around my wrist,
   Eternity cannot stop laughing at my love for you.


It watches carousels converting motion into
   Special Relativity,
   as youngsters scream and holler.
It watches waves becoming particles
   as it cooks a meal for two,
   then three.
It watches the wind play rodeo with the sea,
   unconvinced that it is anything other than
   a mere thought.

Eternity will only stop laughing
   when love's clock finally runs out
   of Time.
