ETERNITY

Seventy by seven
Isn’t enough time
For thanking Heaven,
Finding reason, rhyme.

Till kingdom come
Isn’t enough time
For nothing’s humdrum
In love’s paradigm.

Ten thousand years
Isn’t enough time
For our fears
Are now sublime.

Now and forever
Isn’t enough time
For death never
Ends love’s climb.

I write. Remember making-up stories from spelling words in the fifth grade. A journalism degree followed. Thanks for looking. View all posts by John Northcutt Young
