We Have Forever

Nothing lasts forever,
Forever makes me smile.
Forever is as much a split second,
As it is a long, long while.
All we have is forever,
So forever is endless.
Life is so, so fragile,
Moments slip into the next.
So how long is forever?
A long, long time indeed.
Because if we only have one second,
It’s all we’ll have and all we need.
And if we have years and decades,
To exist and while away.
We still only have forever,
Forever is every second of every day.
