Ever Since

Ever since will never be in the now
It will always have a past
No matter how we try 
Ever since will always be in remembrance

Ever since that happened is done
I was never able to recover
Ever since I came back
It was never the same 

Try as you may
Try as you might
To bring what was to now
Ever since is a thing of the past

Ever since I can remember
Speaks of what was
It is done and said
What will become of ever since?

It was a beginning when it was
First brought into the universe
The scheme of things
Ever since I’ve known that to be

All ever since had a beginning
Which will lead to an end
But the end is not yet
Ever since I can remember 

this is for One Shot
