*3 Nothing Lasts For Ever

Rating: 5.0
Nothing lasts for ever - except the LOVE of GOD
Tomorrow all forgotten - the streets where once I trod
Even in my lifetime - I've seen things come and go
The school where I was taught - places I used to know.
Buildings fine and monuments - now lie beneath the sod
Nothing lasts forever - except the LOVE of GOD.

Nothing lasts forever - except the LOVE of GOD
The barns I stored my corn in - the horses I once shod
The fields we sowed our wheat in - all concrete covered Malls
Now an ugly motorway - the woods I played with Pals

Beautiful. It rhymes and flows rythmically, laced throughout the reminiscence with the excellent reminder of vanity and the love of God. Delightful. The trip down memory lane is lovely, tinged with the very real grief of the destruction of the simple natural beauty for the concrete jungle which comparatively stifles all life. The wonder of God's salvation, giving hope and life and changing a man are excellent in this, continuing the theme of change, only for the better, ie. 'nothing lasts forever...even childhood and youth are vanity, and the old man replaced by the new. This is a wonderful piece. I quite enjoyed it.
