In Eternity

Updated on June 12, 2020

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

As an enchanted rock,

that remains alone and sorrowful -

once you will become.


Then from this garden paradise,

lying golden under the sun,

you will never stray again.


As a companion rock,

to make you happy,

I must become.


Then beside you,

resting against you -

we will spend eternity.


All about the birds,

of paradise shall sing

and summer will never end.


Upon your head,

yellow wildflowers and moss will grow

and I’ll have a crown of wild roses.


There we shall sit,

side by side -

in love forever you and I.


I know there will be,

lovely melodies all around

and content we will be.


Then will come a day,

when the rains refresh us,

together we will rise -


dancing through paradise.

      This tugged at my heart and gut before I learned for sure in the comments what I knew had to be the awful truth. It's a great work, and the inspiration from the rock picture is itself inspiring. Nicely done.

      An added note. The inspiration came from the photo of that rock. For some reason I liked it and I took a photo of the rock on my way back home in June 2017. In August 2017 my soul mate passed away.
