What's Forever For

I have a girl friend who is for me, a very successful person but she doesn't seem to notice it in herself. Oftentimes I point out to her how much people look up to her because of her achievements. They don't seem to count; nothing seems to penetrate her mind. The reason I think is her failing marriage.

She is an open book. Her life story is open to all her friends and for what happened to her married life, and for what will happen and for a single person like me, I couldn't help but ask: "What's forever for?" This is the title of the next song/blog entry.

Her love story is a roller coaster and she admits it. For some months that I've known her and been with her most of the time, I know she is torn deep within. She is a known personality, a politician, an achiever, intelligent and all adjectives I can describe her. But she fell deeply in love with the wrong guy that despite his shortcomings, she still patiently waits for her husband. She accepts him with open arms and live as if nothing wrong is happening for the sake of their kid... or for the sake of forever.

This brings me to ask... what's forever for when you're not happy? When the people who honestly love you thinks you're living in a make-believe, in a fantasy, in a dream?

You, what is your forever for?

I will not long for forever if I am not happy with it. I'd rather live with today, live life day by day and thinking happy thoughts. What is my forever for when I am not happy? What is to look forward to when today I am sad. How do I begin building up a happy forever when it is sadness that you have to start it with. Oh, I know I am talking about love. I know I am not a romantic person and I may seem to have categorized love, or perhaps put it in a box or canned it, as if I can measure, define or reason with it... or preserve it just like that.

Love for me is changing... it should change in order for us to cope with the changing environment. And for now, I can say my forever is my happiness. If I am not happy then what's forever for?

for the lyrics=====

I've been looking at people
And how they change with the times
And lately all I've been seeing are people
Throwing love away and losing their minds

Maybe it's me who's gone crazy
But I can't understand why
All these lovers keep hurting each other
When good love is so hard to come by

So what's the glory in living
Doesn't anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what's forever for

And I see love hungry people
Tryin' their best to survive
When right there in their hands
Is a dying romance
And they're not even trying to keep it alive

So, what's the glory in living
Doesn't anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what's forever for

So what's the glory in living
Doesn't anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what's forever for
