Nothing Lasts Forever


This rose you give me,
so fragrant and soft
This offering
will it last for long?
I've learned in life
of things that fade
with space and time.
Be it gifts of love
or blessed people in our lives.
I've learned in life
that nothing lasts forever.
I've seen days of sorrow,
and days of joy
I've wept at funerals
laughed at weddings,
It's a journey; this life
a heart's journey through
tunnels of emotions unstable
claiming you as they wish
Succumb and do not grieve
nothing lasts forever.

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
