Ever Since

Ever since will never be in the now
It will always have a past
No matter how we try 
Ever since will always be in remembrance

Ever since that happened is done
I was never able to recover
Ever since I came back
It was never the same 

Try as you may
Try as you might
To bring what was to now
Ever since is a thing of the past

Ever since I can remember
Speaks of what was
It is done and said
What will become of ever since?

It was a beginning when it was
First brought into the universe
The scheme of things
Ever since I've known that to be

All ever since had a beginning
Which will lead to an end
But the end is not yet
Ever since I can remember 

this is for One Shot

I love this. There are so many angles it can speak of a relationship or love. There is a history that will always be part of the story

Excellent flow as well

thanks for sharing with One Shot

Beautiful sense of returning to a pulsing phrase and then it is linked with a contrasting reflection! Delightful!

Brian Miller said...

nice word play reggie...we can not cling so tightly to the past that we miss the now and ultimately where we are going...great one shot

Reggie said...

All of you have given me some new ideas on how to use this again...LOVE YOU GUYS.

Moon, I'm workin that out in my head already thanks to you :-)

To me it starts out with a tone of regret, but the last stanza takes a turn toward hope for the future. Well done.

Reggie said...

...there is always hope.

Thank you randallweiss

as long as there is a future there will always be a past
and as long as there is a past there will be 'ever since'

I really like this a lot, Reggie. There is so much truth here. I found myself leaving it up for a while and reading it again and again.

Thanks for stopping by my place and for your kind words.

Ever since always conjures a past but not to a specific place or time. A nice poem.
