I was born in a bank - - my mother went there and made a deposit

Forever

Rating: 5.0


Forever is a long, long, time, my dear,
so don't make promises that you can't keep,
but love me just as long as you are here;
I want to feel your presence as I sleep.

I know you're trying hard just to believe
that you can always stay right here with me,
but you're the only one you can deceive;
I know your inner yearning to be free.

It's quite all right; I'll get along just fine
when you are gone. There's nothing I can do
to change things, but at least for now you're mine.
I'll take as much as I can get of you.

Go on, take off and give free life a whirl;
I'll let you know if it's a boy or girl.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Not a true-life situation, just a product of my imagination. Written from a woman's point of view, even though I am not a woman.
COMMENTS OF THE POEM

I like it, very thoughtful, and thought provoking. I like that it is from a woman perspective, rather reminds me of John Prine's incredible song: 'Angel From Montgomery'.

Smoky, thank you so much for the comment. This poem was posted for TEN DAYS without getting any comments, and you are the first to do so. This website has changed so much. In the old days it would have got many comments the first day.
