A Little While More

He says it is perfect,
But I know better
In the long run
It might not even be OK

But it is honest
I don’t know where it might go
But right now
It all feels pretty good.

I hope the feeling lasts,
But history, and the human condition
Tell me otherwise.
There will be restlessness again

There will be grief, fear, passion,
The darkest of secrets.
Nothing lasts forever
But maybe

If I take a deep breath and hold on
I can make this feeling stay
At least for a little while more.

it will stay! But no point being stubborn, if it has to go, let go but why not a wee bit longer! why not?

It is honest, and you are honest. The ability to enjoy it while it lasts is good, but boy oh boy, when it ends, it hurts.
