Nothing lasts forever…not the pain, not the joy, especially not the weather. Everything you know is temporary…and yeah, the fact that all you love can suddenly crumble is kinda scary but…nothing on Earth is forever. At least nothing that can die. Themes of life, like love, however, tend to survive. Although love may be reflected in anothers’ eyes over time. And the lover that you have naked in your bed…and the father that tucks you in and then always kisses your head…your pet, your best friend, your enemy…they are all just temporary. The pain, the joy they bring…the feelings that make you weep or sing…it’s all temporary. Or you can be more optimistic and say that the relationships you have last only a short “forever” because the time that you spent together felt like an eternity at one point. In the grand scheme of life, however, “forever” is only a fraction of your own story. The first girl or boy you kissed will likely not be your only.
But please, don’t fear or expect the imminent end, because then you won’t be living in the moment…and that you will regret.
