Forever?
Seven letters.
A word with many meanings;
Forever.
But what is forever?
We say forever,
Like we know what we’re doing.
“I’ll love you forever.”
I have one question,
And please if you may,
Answer me honestly.
How long is forever?

Forever.
Seven letters.
A word with meanings…
Forever.
Because forever is what we make it.
A day to a year,
Or maybe honestly,
Forever.

Forever is a word,
That to it’s sayer,
Gains or loses,
The meaning it may rightfully,
Or should rightfully have.
Forever is now to be taken lightly,
Now since we diminished it.
We stole it’s meaning.
Replacing it with our feelings.
Our moods;
Ready to change at the point of pain.

Forever isn’t forever anymore.
Just as we say love,
When we mean use.
“I’ll love you forever”
Now translated by us,
“I’ll use you until I’m finished.”
But oh, how much nicer it sounds,
As “I’ll love you forever.”
Forever?

Could you love me forever?
For real?
Could you care about me,
With my best interests,
Until the end of time,
And not just for when,
You grow tired,
And no longer feel like,
Dealing with my trials and errors.
For I promise there are many.
Forever?

Forever is a word I hate.
Seven letters arranged in our liking.
The time we choose,
The fate we make.
Forever;
A word of many meanings.
Redefined to now defy,
It’s natural meaning;
Forever.

    Your poem FOREVER? is wise and true. In this world there is no forever for this world is designed for change. Only God is forever and Us at our Spirit Place. In one sense change is good in that we can change our mind about how we see ourselves, others and the world and so be instruments of that peace that lives quietly inside us – forever. Perhaps that’s the best we can hope for here, but then perhaps that’s enough – for now. Thank you for visiting me on my site. And thank you for your thought provoking words. Peace eternally and always and forever, Sharie
