Myth

Though forever seemed so far away
A promise that we both chose
We'd follow the rules that life demands
And see how far it goes

To live on love, our only plan
How could we go wrong?
As each day passed we grew apart
Forever's not that long

A million kisses gone to waste
The product of a lie
Love's a gift that's made to last
It's not supposed to die

We tried our best to see it through
To rewrite history
But now each time they write of love
It won't mention you and me

Though legend we were meant to be
We'll ever be remembered with
The likes of Romeo and Juliet
Forever just a myth

    I have just read all of your January poems Larry and they are all so sad. I hope that it is just the poet writing and does not reflect your life. I miss your mother-in-law poems. These are beautiful but as I said, so sad. Love, joyce

    Larry, you have a gift, words I understand, presented in such a way, although of a sad passing of love, also of the understanding of what it should be. thank you! x Peace, Ruby
