FOREVER

They told me forever was a long time
It would go on and on and on
They said it would be an eternity
I would be glad when it came to an end
They said that Death, was a stranger
But would someday come as a friend
They said about tomorrow
They said it would never come
But I saw my tomorrow, yesterday
As out in the cold I did go
It came just after midnight
Just as yesterday went
No one heralded, its arrival
It came and then it was gone
I heard no joyous celebrations
No trumpets blast in the night
My eternity lasted forever
Just like the moon and the stars
Till the stranger called me
Then my forever was over
My eternity, gone in a flash
Now I am but a memory
Alive in the minds of my friends
But all to soon that to will vanish
As everthing comes to an end
Don’t let these simple words depress you
Its the same for all living things
We are born we florish, we die
Yet that’s not the end of life’s story
It just goes on and on and on
We live forever in the minds and bodies of your children
Our genes, go on and on and on…
