Stanley Cooper

(August 4th,1926 / New York City)

“Always and Forever”


The promised “always” and “forever” emotionally akin
Both heart-felt deeply from within
Hopefully not a momentary thing
Or from just a momentary fling

“From here to eternity”, too easily voiced
When naïve youngsters optimistically rejoice
“Always” and “forever” are long and far away
To say with such assurance on any youth-filled day

Maturity offers a more plausible prediction
An “Always and forever”, promise
With more promising conviction

I want you to know
one thing.

of the slow autumn at my window,
