Say what you like

Say what you like

Say what you like
         about infinities
about endless eternities
         in your heart you know
that this day
         will never return

The black tide of time
         is in our nature
the soft petals
         on the plucked rose
will soon fall to dust

To say that nothing lasts
         is not to despair
it is to admit the majesty
         of the moment
of the kiss bestowed
         of the love made
of the deed done
         once and for all
