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.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
