Poem: How Much Time Is Forever

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"How Much Time Is Forever" is a poem about hearing someone say the word forever.

She wonders how much time forever really means.

Is it a glance between two hearts that last an eternity or a treasure full of memories over a lifetime.

Maybe it's both.

A keepsake for one to treasure in his heart.

"Now is Forever - Lauren Daigle"


How Much Time Is Forever

she heard him say,
but what does it mean?

How can one measure time in forever?

Is it a fleeting glance
between two moments
which lives on in an eternity
within two hearts?

Or is it a lifetime
of memories one builds with each step he takes through this journey called life?

Or is it both?
a treasure for him
to keep
safe within his heart.


Alice: How long is forever?

White Rabbit: Sometimes, just one second.
