Of eternity and lifetimes

Let’s aim for eternity
she said
and we should be good
for the lifetime

we did not
waste our breaths
on subsequent lifetimes

what’s the point
when you have to
aim for eternity
again and again

honestly, though
we did dwell
on the issue
of multiple lifetimes
together

surely, she said,
it’s very unlikely
that this is our first
if there are many

probability is loaded
against it
especially if
the talk of seven or so
has a grain of truth

and if it’s indeed not
our first,
I concurred,
then not remembering
what we learned
the last time around
kind of makes the case
for keeping it simple

this lifetime
and aiming
for eternity
hoping
it would be enough
for this lifetime
