Forever Beautiful – Love Poem

3 Oct

What we have is

something good

I can’t deny.


You are sweet without

sickly – true sweetness.

Your name means

“Forever Beautiful”.

(I almost cry to think)


No, beautiful,

what we have is beautiful,

you are beautiful

forever, in essence,

and what we have is



Beautifully sad too


beauty is not forever.


we have something

something good

something beautiful,

and sad,

because something is for now

and beauty is for now

you and I

we are for now.

But Nothing is.

    A beautiful poem of love. The truism of love everlasting is put to test, because nothing last forever. I liked your arrangement and the buildup of love only to lower its expectations with the notion that it, like everything, does not last forever. Even a memory doesn’t last forever, because too soon we die and with that final gasp the memory is gone.

      Thanks for the comment,

      yes it ends on a down-note. Everything ends on a down-note, unfortunately!

    Lovely. You have caught a whisp of the ephemeral quality of beauty and love. Very bittersweet and haunting.

    Great poem mate. Very moving and deep, stirs up a bit of melancholy and sorrow but it works because of that.

    It is first time I come across your poems and there are very well written. I especially like this one because it looks at beauty in many different shades of light. Keep it up. Eddy C.
