Forever is not merely time unending.
It simply is, outside of space and time.
For us, who cannot be except in motion,
The eternal is like color to the blind,
Yearning without hope of comprehension.

There is, however, beauty in the notion.
What one imagines, one can be, depending
On powers resident in every mind.
