Halfway to forever

Each sail of the journey
On life’s ferry
Seems like an endless dream
Just to wake up at the ray’s beam
Saying it’s just halfway to forever

From youth to old years
From strength to grace
It’s likened to infinity
A number increasing
But still ends at halfway to forever

The endless wait
That makes us waste no haste
But makes us pace and race
To opportunity’s embrace
Should tell us it’s halfway to forever

The moment we spend
With the loved ones we tend
And wish such times never end
But seek to stop clock’s hand
Still time will tell it’s halfway to forever

With each subject we know
And in knowledge grow
We don’t scratch the brunt
Of wisdom’s fallow ground
For our tillage is but halfway to forever
