Nothing Lasts Forever

They say nothing lasts forever,
that people change and love will die.

I lie awake
thoughts swirling in my head.
I feel the rise and fall
of your chest.
Your quiet breathing
peaceful,
like a lullaby.
It kills me how
the silence
brings out the best of us.
The darkness of the night
hides
our fears,
insecurities, and
the truth
that neither of us know
where this will end up.

They say nothing lasts forever,
that people change and love will die.

I close my eyes
and drift off to sleep,
with our song
played on repeat.
