Nothing is permanent except him’ for monthly poetry challenge

‘Nothing is permanent except him’.

Free verse

40 lines

When she met me
It was love at first sight
Sparks flew from heart to heart
Ishimchonshim as Koreans put it

She looked at me
As we got off the bus
In Korea

And I knew she was the one
The girl I had been dreaming of
For eight years

We exchanged phone numbers
Agreed to meet later in the week
The next night she was waiting for me
I signed her on the post where I was teaching

We went out to a coffee shop
She told me
That she had decided
I was the one for her
I was hers

I told her I felt the same way
We proposed three days later
Ever since then
Once a day or so
We recall how we met

And she thanked me
For coming into her life
And she reminds me
She had saved me

She said she did not believe
That I had been dreaming of her
For eight years

But she knew we were fated
To be together
Had been together
In our prior life

And will be together
In our next life.
For she concluded
Nothing is permanent except for him
And our endless love.
