Forever Young

I’ve been thinking a lot about life recently

How fleeting and unfair it can be at times

How suddenly you left

Without a hug or a kiss goodbye

Maybe you were too good for this world

So much experience cramped into half a life

But then I smile

You are forever young

Forever in your prime

Forever with that beaming grin

I have no idea what happens when the light goes out

But maybe you‘re happy

Wherever you are

Drinking red wine and lighting up the room

Forever young.
