L. B. Mek

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

  • Fay Slimm.

    Thanking you dear L.B. for this beautifully poemed and heart-moving read of lifelong devotion seeking to reassure another that true love lasts forever. Such a comforting thought.

    • L. B. Mek

      having people connect with seemingly simplistic write's like this, is one of the main reasons I strive to learn and grow,
      thank you Fay, truly

      I don't have a partner, nor have I lost a partner who I loved so very much, so i can't say that your question here would be in my mind at that time of passing. But, oh my, you sure touched a nerve with this one.

      • L. B. Mek

        that's awesome, I think the element of freely given dedication/loyalty - within love, is genuinely relatable
        thank you for your honest and supportive comment, always appreciated my friend

        Good write LB.

        • L. B. Mek

          Thank you.

        • Michael Edwards

          What a super piece - I must write something similiar to dedicate to my wife.

          • L. B. Mek

            wow, that's exactly the response I hoped my scribble would have: a gentle nudge to help us cherish those by our sides, whilst we can
            thanks Michael

            This is more than good, and it's even better than great, and it gets more emotive with every read.

            • L. B. Mek

              if only we could favourite comments 😳
              Thank you, so very much.

            • RDS

              I do like the space evoked in the first verse then filled with eternal love. Potent, thanks for sharing.

              • L. B. Mek

                appreciate your detailed comment and encouragement,
                thank you for taking the time

              • Clara

                Perfect timing reading this poem. A reminder that true love doesn't actually end when you're apart. You've penned this so beautifully. A solid sense of reassurance and belief in the foundation of your love. One for the favourites.

                • L. B. Mek

                  firstly, thank you for encapsulating the essence of my words so thoughtfully and it's so humbling when someone connects with my mere scribbles like you have, I also believe timing plays a key role in defining the levels we connect with the things we read or hear,
                  I'm so grateful for your encouragement, truly appreciated

                • Goldfinch60

                  So meaningful to me LB, although my wife has passed she is still with me and will always be there.


                  • L. B. Mek

                    yes my friend, I understand how relatable these words may be for one who is an exemplary champion of everlasting love: like you,
                    thanks Andy
