What Happens When Forever Never Comes?

There was a day…
Many a fine day…
Whispers of futures unseen…
Glimpses of what might be…

There was a day…
Belief in experiences to come…
Knowing I am the one…
Potential is never done…

There was a day…
Starlit days and moonlit nights…
Moments of passion, world delights…
Dreams to hold and feel and glean…

There was a day…
One which escapes me now…
A day I need in order to scrawl my words…
Something to imagine of something unseen…

What happens when forever never comes?
Kaleidoscope lives flit in and out as myriad images blurred by time.
What happens when forever leaves the room?
That place where you manufacture goals and aspirations.

There was a day…
A lonely day…
A day of reckoning…
Where my soul lies bleeding lifeforce out each breath

There was a day…
Fingers to the keys…
Never lost to the song of life…
Sadness envelops the coming hours…

What happens when forever never comes?
Emptiness grows around nothing but memories.
What happens when forever dies to life?
Echoes of laughter, tenderness, hope.

There is a day…
Fresh in its stale repetition of many before
Where a step any direction brings you home
Even if home houses you, an empty bed, hollow thoughts and passive dread

What happens when forever never comes?
Words flow…
Emotions billow the tiniest of embers
Fingers slide across a familiar landscape of keys
Where you discover you still own this moment, this hour, this day

And…

You wonder why forever left your side…
You explore the depths of sadness at its loss…
Until you realize forever never truly left…
She awaits your next…

…thought…
