Whatever Happened to Forever

Whatever happened to forever?
A hard responsibility to endeavor,
No matter the whoever,
Or the situation whatsoever.

Took it for granted you’d always be there,
Of course, back then was so far away,
Never imagining how soon we’d be here,
Missing you each and every day.

Looking back, it’s easy to see,
How much closer we should have been,
You wondering what we’d turn out to be,
While we tried to be everything you’d seen.

Never really knowing if we did,
As we stood in the loving view of your sight,
Then you were gone in a matter of a night,
Yet somehow, Still here by our side,
You let us know we did all right.

I don’t know where forever went,
But it left our hearts battered with dents,
As we said good bye to the best,
Our Dad, who was definitely heaven sent.

With love forever, we’ll forget you never,
You’ll always be our Father,
And that’s all that really matters.

Artist's Description

Just a little wisdom from an old man. For all of you out there that still think they have plenty of tomorrows they can put things off to, think again. No matter how time seems to stretch, it eventually catches up with you and makes you feel like a fool when you see just how many things you’ve put into your tomorrow that you will never get to. Use today and do all the things you always wanted to put off before it’s too late.
