Forever


Forever is but a concept
That exists in our own minds
Like railway tracks going off
To infinity, to a finite dot.

But what is forever in our mind?
Is it months in the future, a
Series of never ending dates
That melt into further months?

Forever is a time span that we
Cannot imagine; like eternity,
Never ending. Something
Beyond our comprehension.

For some forever is all the time
They have left in the moment
Of life’s complexity where even
Tomorrow lasts forever.

    We imagine a lot of things in this life when we cannot figure it out.
    Forever is one of them.

    I enjoy this open. And well written.
