Eugène Guillevic: “Eternity”

Eternity

Eternity
Was never lost.

We just didn’t know
We just couldn’t see

How to turn it into days,
Into landscapes and into skies,

Into words we said to others,
Into gestures we believed in.

But holding it for ourselves
Was not so hard

And there were even moments
When it seemed so clear
That we ourselves were eternity.

Eugène Guillevic
