I can say forevers can be counted,
On the tiny fingers of love
Born a few years ago,
On the walls painted red,
Every year on the same date.
But love has grown up now.
The red walls have been repainted,
This time, on another date,
Only to be repeated year after year,
One false forever after another.
And truths, these days, are spoken
The same way promises are made,
With gritted teeth and crossed fingers.
At the end of the day,
All smiles seem fake,
The fake forevers remain
To be counted upon the stars,
One after the other,
Some too dim to be seen,
But a forever, nevertheless,
Another star to keep.
