An Eternity - Poem by Leila Kay

An Eternity defined

An eternity defined by love
Asks
For time to know
To love
To strengthen
To gain love lost
To lose pain gained

An eternity defined by loss
Asks for return
Asks to turn back the hands of time
The for the point of no return
The end

An eternity defined by pain
Asks for freedom
To cry
A release of spirit
A life of solitude

An eternity defined by time
Asks for the past
The present
The future
The begining


An eternity defined by me
Now and forever
You and I
