A Prayer for Forever

I prayed that Jim will be my first and last.
But You decided he’ll just be the first.
All he has given me are tears.

I prayed
that Jack will give me a ring
and we’ll live happily ever after.
But You said, “Here’s your ring and wear it until you get fatter.”
Jack looked for another.

I prayed that Dave will be my prince
and we’ll build a house with a fence.
But You have shown me that Dave is but a frog.
It’s better to kiss a bug.

I prayed for so many guys to be my forever.
But You taught me that forever is meant for only one –
Someone who will say Never –

Never will I love someone else.
Never will I hurt you.
Never will I deny you.
Never will I abandon you.
Never will I desire forever,

If it is not with you.
