Forever

I always thought we would

grow old together,

I never worried because

you would be with me forever.

But then forever arrived

sooner than I thought

and took you with him

despite how hard you fought.

Now I am left to deal

with what remains,

the day to day mediocrity

and all that they contain.

The future that I saw was

extinguished before my eyes,

my dreams and plans

all proven to be lies.

I only know of one thing

that will last forever

and that’s the pain

of your loss that I must endeavour.

  1. Bittersweet sadness to words of true love and relationships we think will last forever. Sometimes we don’t get so lucky.

    This is both heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time ❤
