be my constant, please

8 Mar

I miss eternity
the fair seasons of which
a ship could slide gently down arbor
and your soul would slide next to mine

the quality of our breathing
a fatigue would deny
centuries, yet it is only
a lifetime

yet a lifetime for us mortals
is eternity
and what loves we allow
a precious thing

what loves could we allow?
what truth could we speak?
what justice? what mercy?
I wish with one lifetime
an eternity worth keeping.
