Forever Is Such a Long Time

 If you can imagine a guitar pickin’ country song which pours out grief over a lost love while moving along to an easy tempo, give my modern ballad lyric a read and maybe even a listen should your head and your heart hear a melody which matches its soulfulness. 

Verse 1:
When we were first lovers
Forever meant a pair
With a life full of promise
And happiness to share
But vows that were broken
Make forever mean alone
And angry words that were spoken
Left us each on our own.

1st Chorus:
(AND NOW) FOREVER IS SUCH A LONG TIME–
FOREVER IS CRYIN’ INSIDE–
TEARS THAT WON’T END
AND A HEART THAT CAN’T MEND
‘CAUSE FOREVER IS SUCH A LONG TIME . . .

Verse 2:
I happened to see you
Last night out on the town.
You looked like a princess–
Your hair a golden crown.
I thought you might see me
So I turned my head away
‘Though I wished I could tell you
What I’ve learned the hard way.

2nd Chorus:
(IT’S THAT) FOREVER IS SUCH A LONG TIME–
FOREVER IS CRYIN’ INSIDE–
TEARS THAT WON’T END
AND A HEART THAT CAN’T MEND
‘CAUSE FOREVER IS SUCH A LONG TIME . . .

Bridge:
Will I ever stop rememb’rin’
The magic of your charms?
Or can I find a new forever
In someone else’s arms?

Last Chorus:
(‘TIL THEN) FOREVER IS SUCH A LONG TIME—
FOREVER IS CRYIN’ INSIDE—
TEARS THAT WON’T END
AND A HEART THAT CAN’T MEND
‘CAUSE FOREVER IS SUCH A LONG TIME . . .

    This applies to so many choices a person can make in their lives. Dreams broken, lives shattered. However, the best is to learn, apply the lesson, and move forward. Just beautiful!
