Forever Now - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

Rapid is the heart that beats within me
Knowing things that can never be
Vast is the distance between us in time
Decades pass twice in a lifetime

To hold would rob your exuberance
Flattered be I am but only from a distance
Autumn I am spring you are
Seasons close but yet too far

These things you must know
Young in years seasons more to grow
Me in my twilight hour
Sweetness would now sour

What you want can never why
Damaged goods that am I
Lots more for you to explore
Forever now I will adore
