A Quote from my Father" Many times we forget that our freedom was not free for many paricipants. The cost is measured by blood on the soil. And it is still happening. Nothing seems to change." -My Dad
Always and Forever You know, I thought that you really meant it? I really did. When you said that you loved me. And at the time maybe it was true, maybe you did mean it. But what happened? Did you change your mind? Was I not good enough for you, is that it?
Or, maybe I was too oblivious to the fact you never cared at all. Was it just a charade? Did you just pretend to love me, was any of it real to you at all? Well, boy, let me tell you that it was very real for me.
You told me that forever was ours and that we would always be together. Always. But now I know that there is no such thing as forever. Always doesn't even exist.
We humans often are gullible when it comes to promises, especially made by the ones we love the most. We don't take into consideration, the facts. We like to believe that when we are gone things may be altered but time will still continue. We like to believe that love can last an eternity.
When Forever Simply Isn'tI don't believe in forever.
Would You Like to Know why?
Well the answer is simply
That Everyone must die.
The bitter truth is that
There is no such span of time.
But to say that it is so
Really isn't a crime.
Because our vision of always
Is just part of a hopeful dream
Imagined by those who wish
That life is more than it may seem.
But in the vast expanse of space
It is not a lie to say
That time can stretch
and flow as it makes its way.
I can, with confidence conclude
That love does not always last.
Even though we promised forever
Our love now lies in the past.
Because always is only a word
meant for the naive
Who actually have the trust
To say that they believe.
The reality I learned the hard way
Is that some infinities are bigger than the rest
And my forever wasn't strong enough
To withstand time's harsh test.
