Nothing Is Forever

Nothing is forever
this side of eternity.
Many times are severed
the things that should always be.

Maybe a job that’s new
and you find you make new friends.
You love the work you do
then you find one day it ends.

In a perfect time here
you know this would never be.
No loss of things to fear
nor grief would we ever see.

But nothing is forever
this side of eternity.
So despise your life never
for who knows when our end will be ?

    Very true and very beautiful Poem. Thanks for your precious comments on my poem 'Adieu To Unheard Melodies'. I am reminded here few lines from our holy book Gita which says, "What have you created, that can get spoiled? What ever you took, you took from here! What ever you give away, You give them, back here! What ever is your's today, will be some other person's tomorrow!" Best wishes and love Ravindra

    it is true that the hills and sea will depart, but Gods' word will always stand, he is forever so we are lucky to have him and the truth that all things have seasons in our life but to us God is eternal, thanks for a great message, your poem reminded me that when this world falls apart God will raise me up Amen my friend thanks God bles from diane
