Eternity - A Poem

Updated on December 8, 2017

Everyone has their own version of eternity. For some, it's in that moment where you wait for an answer. Others could spend eternity, lost in a smile. For others still, it's a loved one's eyes. This poem is just an attempt to capture what eternity could mean for some.

Eternity

Your eternity could be in the eyes of your lover,

Or in the lap of your mother.

Your eternity could be in the rhyme of words,

Or in the free flight of birds.

Your eternity could be in a shallow smile,

Or in the glory of the last mile.

Your eternity could be standing in front of you,

Promising to make your dreams come true;

Or it could have already passed you by,

On that cloud, you saw that day in the sky.

Your eternity could be in a beautiful dream,

Or in a newborn's scream;

Your eternity could be in a family fight,

Or in a damsel's fright.

Your eternity could be wailing in your ears,

Consoling you for years;

Or it could have been the pin that pricked,

Hidden, making you feel tricked.

Your eternity could be in the lines of a story,

Or in a poem's allegory.

Your eternity could be in that broken vase’s glister,

Or in the soothing voice of your sister.

Your eternity could be in those drops of dew-

The ones that always bothered you-

Early morning during monsoons;

Or in the sun's wrath of high noons.

Your eternity could be in a man's fatal flaws,

Or your friend's faithful paws.

Your eternity could be in a gentle Spring breeze,

Or your father's coat's crease.

Your eternity could be in a Summertime sunset,

Or in castle made of a blanket.

Your eternity could be plain in sight,

Displaying its might;

Or it could be hidden from view,

Running from you.

Your eternity could be in a sigh of relief,

Or your grandmother's staunch belief.

Your eternity could be in a frosty icicle,

Or in the wheels of your childhood bicycle.

Your eternity could be in a fleeting Autumn shower,
Or in the petals of a flower.

Your eternity could be in the arms of your lover,

Or in the smile of your brother.
