Nothing Lasts For Ever - Poem by Jean Moir

Nothing in our hands we bring
When in this world we take our place
We are all unique we are told
And to our parents we are worth more than gold
Nothing or nobody lasts forever
So they are our lifeline
To carry on when we are gone
Nothing in this world stands still
And nothing lasts for ever
Night falls and a new day dawns
And the young takes over from theold
Nothing in this world is free from care
And nothing lasts for ever
So let us spread our happiness around and
Live in peace with one another
Nothing in this life is sure and
Nothing lasts for ever
But it costs so little and means so much
To give a little of ourselves
Nothing in this life is ours
But when we leave this life behind
Our good deeds live on in the hearts of men.
