All We Love and Cherish Today

Nothing of true value comes without cost,
and everything dear will someday be lost-
causing much pain and relentless sorrow,
the deepest sadness we will ever know.
This is the price eventually paid,
for all that is loved and cherished today.

From all things we love someday we will part,
this is the sad fate destined from the start.
Forever lost to history or grave,
there are none forever that can be saved.
This is the price eventually paid,
for all that is loved and cherished today.

Today’s pleasures beget pain tomorrow,
and today’s joy will result in sorrow.
The pleasures of love we enjoy today-
bitter gall when it passes away.
This is the price eventually paid
for all that is loved and cherished today.

Many things once cherished now passed away,
bittersweet memories of yesterday. 
Even so I again open my heart,
another cycle of sorrow to start.
This is the price eventually paid
for all that is loved and cherished today.
