See you around
 

Love that lasts forever sometimes fades

Before your eyes, fades by tiny increments

Before you realise, that what you thought

Rock solid is nothing more than sand, and

What you thought long-lasting, just an ice

Cube in your hand.

 

Love that lasts forever? Oh, please, don't

Make me laugh, of course there must be

Lots of good relationships that last, but

What of those that fail the grade, and end

Up breaking down. when all that one is left

With is a cold 'See you around.'

 

Love that lasts forever is a rarity indeed,

We all think we have found it but it's often

Not to be. It doesn't mean it isn't there, far

From it I would say, but it sure takes lots

Of looking for - should you find it - keep it

Safe.
