Forever Time

Jay Chambers

The ticking of the clock 
Proved to us our temporary youth 
That these days won’t last 

The days when 

we laugh underneath the moonlight 
Before I leave to head home 
Guided by a shining star 

we dance in your parent’s kitchen 
The only music our beating hearts 
And whispers of loving oaths 

you cry in longing 
Wishing that my feet were glued 
On the ground I stand. 

These days are temporal 
But we are pleased to know 
That the fleeting 
Soon will be the forever.
