Eternity--By Gerald A. McBreen--United States


My blast of life got its start when your smile
beamed on me
Eternity  that’s how long
my love for you will last
In the night  we embrace  dance alone
until stars go home
In your eyes I see the light of love
I adore
Our first kiss  sparked a million more
Eternity  that’s how long
I long to be in your arms
Eternity  That’s where I’ll be until the end
from now till  then that’s how long
my love for you will last

Gerald A. McBreen found poetry after he retired from the US Postal Service. He discovered he had a flair for romance. He has been publishing for ten years with True Romance and their related magazines. He is the coordinator for Striped Water Poets. They sponsor an “open mic” every first Wednesday of the month. They also post 'Poems on Posters' around the area. In 2009 Pacific, Washington celebrated its 100th anniversary, and he was appointed Poet Laureate. (2009 - 2013)
