Ode to Harleen
The mind tends to fear what it does not understand,
And I have seen the laws of nature bend to your will.
I have seen the impossible manifest itself into reality at your command.
I have watched the currents of oceans retreat as you approached their shores.
I have seen rock turned to dust at your touch,
And brush set ablaze at a single glance.
I observed these phenomena, inconceivable as they were, yet I did not feel fear.
But where were you when I needed to know that the properties of this world can be manipulated?
When I needed to know that you are not fettered to the limitations of time and space?
Where were you when I needed you to breathe life into me again?
Where were you to pick me up when I was down, lift me out of the mud, wipe the grime away from my cheeks and dry my tears?
Where were you when I needed help?
To protect me from the rain,
And when the flooding began,
Where were you to save me from drowning?
