Everlasting’s meaning

whether I live my life 

by your side

or we are forced 

a million clouds apart


I know 

at that last sip-of-breath

you’ll still - be the essential core 

of all that I prize


and onwards too

when that bleak unknown comes to greet

I shall first ask: of your whereabouts 

my dear
