Nothing Lasts Forever

The sunset drapes a curtain over endless seas
I sync my breath with the flow of the tide
Seconds tic away turning day into night
Stars emerge from the light where they hide

The moon shines a path down open waters
I wish to sail away to chase the sunset
Sadness of departure brings tears to my heart
I wasn’t ready for the magic to leave just yet

I wanted to capture the moment in memory
But I’m afraid I may never remember it again
As time goes on it will be another fragment
Sitting deep in the storage of my memory bin

One by one becoming a grain in the hourglass
I’m now at peace with letting them all go
Nothing lasts forever in this world we’re in
So now I just sit back and enjoy the show
