Forever

To turn and walk away from you
Would be but mortal gesture
To end a thing that is never finished.

To wake and rise again with you
Would be pretending
That all is as it was before.

Yesterday
Was touching easy
Before the morning settled in.

Awake
We stumbled over stones,
Wandering ways that led us apart.

Of night,
Much mystery is born,
Causing lovers to be torn.

Depart you, love, not away from me–
For a thing never finished
Must not so easy end.

Seek me when the wind is still,
Hold me hold me long,
And know that I am strong.

Forever will come back
Not to that which fragile is,
But to that which unending stays.

(Original work by T.M.M.)
