The Edge of Eternity

by Karl Wild GG23

The word forever is often spoken,
In relationships young and old,
Innocent hearts are usually broken,
With words that never seem to hold.

Most know what I'm talking about,
Some have yet to feel the pain,
The mind tells you without a doubt,
Nothing to lose, everything to gain.

So you listen and take a chance,
Forget all about flirting with disaster,
Because love has you in a trance,
And your heart is beating faster.

To hear somebody say "I love you",
Could be the greatest feeling ever known,
But if those words turnout untrue,
Soon enough you'll be all alone.

Still it never crosses our mind,
When it's all said and done we'll see,
That it's harder then it looks to find,
The edge of eternity.
