A lifetime, or: A moment

Poetry Partners #176

‘Lifetime Partnership’, a poem by Jan Beekman

There is nothing like
A lifetime partner
No person on earth
Can know me like he does

There is nothing on earth
Like a trusted lover
No one on earth
Can bring the joy he does

There is nothing on earth
Like a God-given soulmate
No one on earth
Understands me as he does

There is no one on earth
Who could ever replace him
Please, Lord, I beg You,
Let him outlive me!

An ‘Waltz Wave’ by ben Alexander of ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’

to discern
that it's
moments that
are true

for lovers,
such as sitting

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)
