Forever and Ever...

nothing lasts forever
forever is a lie, distorting
  how we see today, tomorrow
finitude contains the truth
  of our humanity, shining
light on this very moment
  this fleeting never-to-be-lived-again
breathe in.  breathe out
inspiration.  expiration
life riding on the breath
  the ruach   the spirit
until one last breath in-
  or out, and then forever
  is no more or matters not a bit
absorbed into infinity' s deep mystery
with molecules among the stars
our DNA enlivening those we
  leave behind-
             perhaps forever taking a
             different shape?
