Nothing but God Lasts Forever

Learning His lessons at last The past must die as the past The future must never exist So let the fates turn and twist No time to berate and bemoan Each instant is ever on loan Right now is the now or never Nothing but God lasts forever *Inspired by Robert Frost's poem 'Nothing Gold Can Stay'

Good sentiments Tim, nothing but God last forever, so what should we all be. Excellent write. I haven't read any Robert Frost since I was a kid. Sounds like wisdom coming from his inspiration in this poem. Sincerely, Moses
