Draw the curtain, look, you're only sleeping Or is this only what the other you is dreaming? Either way Hard to take

Ashen features unmistakably your own Familiar posture, recast in skin and bone Person from today, here is you In 2082

Remove your helmet, first equalize the pressure No, but first, take readings to be sure The atmosphere is safe Yes, it's safe

As the ancient one cranes his neck to look You see his hand's been replaced with a hook But it's clear you're very much alive It's 2105

No, it's 2240 No, it's 3415 How can you still be living? What does this mean?

You must honor and respect the older fellow Even as you suffocate him with his pillow Though you're strong He was wise

There is much you can learn from the sage And though you'll leave and travel back to your own age You will meet again, you two In 2082

What was the look he gave intended to convey? Was there something else he was trying to say? It will all be revealed to you In 2082
