In the tenth second of forever
I thought of the sea and a white yacht drifting.
In the ninth second of forever
I remembered a warm room where voices played.
In the eighth second of forever
I thought of the life I would not lead.
In the seventh second of forever
I thought of a leaf, a stone, a plastic fragment of a child's toy.
In the sixth second of forever
I saw your mouth whispering something I could hear.
In the fifth second of forever
I thought of the vermillion deserts of Mars, the jewelled forests of Venus.
In the fourth second of forever
I could remember nothing that I did not love.
In the third second of forever
I thought of rain against a window, I thought of the wind.
In the second second of forever
I thought of a pair of broken shades lying on the tarmac.
In the first and final second of forever
I thought of the long past that had led to now
