Eternity
SilverGirl

Now is the time we must arrange our plans,
 1
As around us, within us life happens.
 2
Receding ebb tides of immortal seas,
 3
Ease away in a day of zephyr’s breeze.
 4
 
 
Ponder it now as our faces look west,
 5
Wonder solemn what we once said in jest.
 6
Like all before us and aft, we shall wait
 7
For some clue or sign ‘twill unease abate.
 8
 
 
We reason it out as best mortals can,
 9
Have faith in our love, in which God had hand,
 10
In the promises we know He did mean;
 11
Believe God exists, proved Saint Augustine.
 12
 
 
One day with my love I’ll lay by his side,
 13
Though he wants the top for a bony ride.
 14
In afterlife’s glow forever reside,
 15
A heaven apart we could not abide.
