Forever might be short
shorter than we think
especially if we believe
all is impermanent

Forever might be short
though it might be long enough
long enough for spring to come
long enough to make amends

Forever might be long enough
to be forgiven, to be healed
long enough to live in heaven when
forever is this moment

This poem used a line in Emily Dickinson’s poem, To Love Thee Year by Year but was mostly inspired by her poem, Forever – is composed of Nows.
