How Long is Forever

No limit on our time is set
When youth is in full sway
But to a heart steeped in regret
Forever is a day

Amazing how so few words can hold such power. Great work. Even though you make it appear easy.

    What is said, in an instant, causing regret....a lifetime...and still not quick to forget. Kindness can also make time stand still....PEACE

    True and to the point no sugared pill, regrets are forever. Better to have lived well and regret nought.10/10 BB

    one of the best short poems I've read in recent times, Adeline.

    So short, yet even more profound.

    Very nice Adeline! I wrote on time too. Seems to be a popular subject for poems.
