Everlasting Love

You only get a clean slate once
When everything’s fresh and new
The sun shines every single day
There are roses blooming everywhere
Rainbows cascading from deep blue skies,
Each with a pot of gold waiting just for you,
Birds singing pretty songs of old,
Spring is not a word but yours,
Nothing has been done before,
All is to play for right here, right now.

After that, it’s
History biting its tail,
Been there, done that
Clouding your busy mind
Routine and everyday
Putting obstacles in your path
Old mistakes coming to haunt you
New beginnings are made reluctantly
With old wounds still searing
Shackling the brilliance of ever after.

Only in dreams
       Is everything still possible
Only in dreams
       Are you still who you once were
Only in dreams
       Are happy endings right around the corner.

All you are left with
In a day’s work
Is
       The burning desire
       The desperate need
       The wishing want
       The flickering hope
       The unnamed call
To start again with a clean slate
To feel that
       Deep connection
       Enduring affection
       Fiery passion of

Everlasting Love
