Forever Is A Mighty Long Time

It was by chance that we met,
Instantly swept into your currents before I even waved,
Before we exchanged names,
Intuition said you were the one,
I’m just listening to a language many can’t translate,
Its why I’m unconcerned with your fanbase,
And I fall back for your fans sake,
Even when they dim your light as if they’re lamp shades,
Nothing deters me,
Even as you’re being all you can be,
I’m never fatigued,
Tho I do imagine at times how you look in yours,
But no rehab can help this withdrawal,
Trust me I’ve tried,
I couldn’t kick the habit,
It’s why you are a constant image in my mental database,
While others made their case for my heart,
It’s been yours since we parted,
I asked you to keep it safe,
And you have,
As I have asked GOD to keep you safe,
And he has,
But that day,
If it ever comes,
When I get to see your face again,
With that smile that lights up a room like streetlights,
That’s when I know,
What I’ve known forever,
That this life was made for us,
So let’s be us,
But it’s no rush,
Because Krit told me that “Forever Is A Mighty Long Time”,
So we have time,
And I don’t plan to waste anymore.
