Everything Lasts Forever

By: Alan Berger

Everything lasts forever
Nothing goes away
Pain and pleasure
Are permanent residents
In your movements
And your stay

I tried a course
In memory loss
For the mud in me to toss
It said get use to me
The only thing to decide
Is who will be the boss

All the things I laughed at and cried
Hitched a ride
Inside my hide

Grin and bear it
You’re going to have to wear it

Everything lasts forever
Like the lines on your face
To the style of your pace
Nothing goes away
Once it is in your book
You are only in its way

On each page
No matter how you spell it
No matter the memory and the smell of it regarding those long ago nights and days
Nothing goes away
