Always And Forever

Always And Forever

 

days have gone by so fast, so reckless

we both look at each other in awe, in amazement, and wonder

there are so many things I want to say and let me begin by saying

I will always love you and I will never leave you

I have said things I regret and it breaks my heart to see you weeping

if I could only undo what has been done,

I’ll begin by not losing you,

I never really made it alone

 

 

I’ll fight for our love, the kind of fighting you deserve

for I’ve always loved you and never did I ever not love you

I’ll defend our love, the kind of defending you deserve

for I’ve always loved you and never did I ever not love you

 

 

I’ll take this chance to say, I don’t wanna lose you

for I will not only be lonely, but I’d also be dejected

I’d be broken, I’d be down, and I’d be miserable

I’d lose track of myself, and even lose myself

if I could only undo what has been done,

I’ll begin by not losing you,

I never really made it alone

 

 

I’ll fight for our love, the kind of fighting you deserve

for I’ve always loved you and never did I ever not love you

I’ll defend our love, the kind of defending you deserve

for I’ve always loved you and never did I ever not love you

 

 

I’ve always needed you, I am stronger with you

I am better, even the best version of myself with you

and together, we do greater things, conquer greater heights

dream the biggest dreams, hope the best of hopes

even when there is less or nothing hope left

if I could only undo what has been done,

I’ll begin by not losing you,

I never really made it alone

 

 

I’ll fight for our love, the kind of fighting you deserve

for I’ve always loved you and never did I ever not love you

I’ll defend our love, the kind of defending you deserve

for I’ve always loved you and never did I ever not love you

 

‘cos baby, we stay together, live together, love together

always and forever, I swear

 

 

IG prompt by: @kripashanker and @written.by.anthony

write a poem inspired by 80’s songs or lyrics.

My poem is inspired by the song “Glory of Love”, by Peter Cetera.

This was Peter Cetera’s first solo single after leaving Chicago and was the theme song for the film The Karate Kid: Part II, it fit the movie perfectly. 

The verse “I am a man who will fight for your honor, I’ll be the hero you’re dreamin’ of” became an epic, and memorable line, after all, who will not want a man (or even a woman)who is willing to do whatever it takes for the glory of love?
