Nothing Lasts Forever

Nothing Lasts Forever
July 9th, 2008

Nothing lasts for always
It takes forever
Too long to survive time
Too hard to live that long
My heart too small to be devoted to you
Too selfish to try
I can’t give it to you
I can’t be yours always.

Nothing lasts forever.

When I tried I was naive
You turned your back to the gesture
Because it wasn’t enough.
It wasn’t a promise I could keep
It wasn’t for always
It couldn’t be forever.

Nothing lasts forever.
