How Long is Your Always

Written by: Eileen Manassian

You said you will love me....always
Be there for me....always
Cherish me...always

How long is your always, my love?
A moment
An hour
A day
Just for this time
While our bodies and souls are
Intertwined?


How long is your always, my love?
A week
A month
A  season
A year
While I’m still healthy and young
Radiantly beautiful
Smooth
Flawless
Not touched by age
Not worn
But voluptuous 
And appealing

How long is your always, my love?
A lifetime?
Beyond?
To Eternity?

How long is your always, my love?
Tell me…
Explain it to me
When you say
You will love me always
Is your always the same time period as mine?

Search your heart
Search it carefully
Search it well to find the truth
And if your heart answers in a whisper, "FOREVER and ALWAYS"
Then you may claim me as yours….
ALWAYS!
