How Long Is Forever

No limit on our time is set
When youth is in full sway
But to a heart steeped in regret
Forever is a day

Amazing how so few words can hold such power. Great work. Even though you make it appear easy.

Those yesterdays that we seem to have lost Searching for that perfect timeless pearl The nets now torn and the boat no longer fast And the approaching sunset an orange curled......... Brief words, maximum poetry........Keep your pen busy

What is said, in an instant, causing regret....a lifetime...and still not quick to forget. Kindness can also make time stand still....PEACE
