Forever

I always thought we would

grow old together,

I never worried because

you would be with me forever.

But then forever arrived

sooner than I thought

and took you with him

despite how hard you fought.

Now I am left to deal

with what remains,

the day to day mediocrity

and all that they contain.

The future that I saw was

extinguished before my eyes,

my dreams and plans

all proven to be lies.

I only know of one thing

that will last forever

and that’s the pain

of your loss that I must endeavour.
