The Last Night (A Lovesick Teenager’s 1987 Apocalypse Poem)

(This is so amazingly sappy and cheesy. But the first two lines kept popping into my head today. So I dug out my old high school journal and there it was. The only thing I like about it is my correct use of the subjunctive. LOL)

If tonight were the last night

I’d spend it with you

I’d hold you in my arms

While the ocean ran blue

 

If tonight were the last night

I’d kiss you forevermore

and I’d swear to you that night

That my love would endure

 

If tonight were the last night

I’d pray that it would never end

I’d sing to you and talk to you

About all the time we’d spend

 

If tonight were the last night

We’d hold hands in the park

and hope beyond all hope

That it would always stay dark

 

If tonight were the last night

We’d dream of a home together

Those are the things we’d do

If the last night would last forever
