Forever....such a pretty word
Whenever it’s applied.
To something pleasant in our lives
That we wish would abide.....

Forever young- ah, what a thought!
Forever strong and brave...
Not victimized by age,.... disease
Nor haunted by the grave.

Forever with someone we love-
And never all alone...
Nor so by censure be beset
That we despair and groan.

Forever to have peace of mind-
Not haunted by regret-
Of things we’ve done, or things we’ve said
Or people we have met.

Forever true to our own selves-
And not be plagued by shame.
To lose our pride and self-respect
To never be regained.

Forever? What a dreadful word
When we stop and consider-
That life is not composed of sweet
But also holds the bitter.

LOL

Bitter indeed, glad I am that life is somewhat short for I think the bitter lingers on the tongue longer than does the sweet.

Gunslinger:
This is so true!
If I were offered to live forever in these conditions I think I would pass.
Forever is such a strong word.
Great poem!

Slinger - Thought-provoking piece.
I think we all find that life holds a little of each ...
I'd like to believe that sweet forevers overide the bitter times by far.

Hmmm....I've never thought of it that way, thanks for the new perspective.
