I don’t believe in forever…
used to have a precious, pet cat.
had always attended to her needs.
told her many times we would be together, forever.
could be taking care of her until this day,
one day I just gave her away.
once kept a poem so dear to me.
made sure to read it each night.
said I’d keep it with me forever.
could have kept it inside my drawer,
I decided to burn that paper.
love had to leave the town.
gave me a cat to remind me of him,
a poem saying our love would be forever.
plan was after a year, I’d follow him to France,
then I didn’t, for I became scared to take the chance.
don’t know how it ended.
just woke up in a daze; got rid of the letter and the cat.
still I was holding on to that promise of forever.
knows, I still waited…Deep inside, I kept believing…
believing…Only to find another lonely ending…
So I don’t believe in forever…
‘Cause now I know
believing is not enough.
Making something last is
And forever is a choice.
