Forever And An Hour - Poem by keith Durante

she use to wait for me after class
how I longed for time to pass
to hold her hand to stop the sand
flowing through the hour glass of time
for in that moment she was forever mine

with each enticing whisper
our love we would share
and though the world was watching
we would kiss and double dare

how the innocent young bravely push back time
a precious love so bold so pure and sublime
the years push back exhausted heart in hand
the hour glass is empty run out of sand

I remember touching together
a promise of forever
we vowed never say never

I dream of you dancing under moonlit skies
the way sparkling twilight escapes your eyes
how tender you still touch me
then I realize
how strong our passion time could never devour
I was born to love you forever and an hour


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was written for the one I let get away. She will always be my high school sweetheart. It's for Kathy Sanford of West Milford that I will always love and regret leaving her behind.
