Never is a long way from here

It lies along a twisting trail

shrouded in underbrush and thorn

obscured by swirling foggy veil

unseen it awaits us ready to scorn


Never is closer than first thought

It is woven with doubts on fears loom

always rising up to meet us part way

as though our intentions laced with doom

determined that fate will have its say


Never is somehow a whispered lie

It is offered believing control is our own

denying the reality of impossible dreams

suddenly the truth reveald and ending shown

never becomes forever too often it seems
