Impermanence



Happy are we when we gather;
But when the things change,
And the time passes,
We witness our world shatter.


We hope against hope for one more day
Pray as we might,
Curse as we dare
But the time clicks away!

The lost time never to recover
The tarnishing beauty of nature
The abundance of the affluent
Nothing lasts forever!

  2. Happiness are like dreams and beauteous moments are short lived. All set to perish so soon.
