Evermore (poem)

Updated on June 3, 2013

She climbs the stairs outside her door

Which led to streets of evermore

And who can see within her heart

To what has torn her life apart


Her thoughts return to times before

When all her cares were hopes at play

How distant now is yesterday

Across this space of evermore


The flowers which blessed every morn

The scents were sweet kisses were born

The shadow of tears on the floor

Refreshing her vast evermore


Was just a brief heartbeat before

When doorbell would cause her to soar

And her precious dream to restore

To promise of their evermore


But there stood a stranger with note

Perhaps a love letter he wrote

Who knew of sad secret it bore

That drew her to his evermore


She climbs the stairs of unknown shore

Beside her tides of evermore

Was this to be a destiny

One more unfinished memory


But to wilted flowers she swore

That by his side she would remain

Tomorrow would greet sweet refrain

There in the streets of evermore
