Nothing is Forever
Nothing is forever, life is just a day
so promise me nothing forever
just promise me today.
Like a flower our love was nourished
kissed by sunlight, showered with rain
but just like the promises you made
it was scorched by all the pain
The petals they lay broken
from tearing at their stem
they lie there so helpless
never to bloom again.
Why did you say forever
when you meant just for a time?
You could not keep the promise
that forever you’d be mine
I sit here crying and wondering
why did our love have to die?
Though I cared for it so tenderly
it was stricken by your lie.
