Poetry: Forever


What makes a day feel like forever;
When it’s but one turn of the earth?
The setting of the sun gives way to the moon;
Until the dawn flames the sky in rebirth.

In those hours of daylight and darkness,
Misery and sadness keep time.
Left in a void, a heart still yearns;
For an hour that is but an hour.

But each day spent in forever,
Winds down to another day dawned.
Until the torturous wait of eternity shifts,
From forever to fleeting through love.
