We Live In This World For A Brief Time - Poem by Shalom Freedman


We live in this world for a short time
We lose ourselves in the loves of our moment
We revel in the joys of our brief time
And yet it goes
Everything goes

No one will know or remember all we lived and loved
Our moments of beauty and kindness
Our joys

All that we lived and loved
Felt and experienced
Will be as if it never were

All the Beauty we have perceived
All we have created

Nothing will remain of it
Not even our dust

    Well, that's a happy thought. I know it's true,
    Sadly but very well written
    Title might have been, Nada, Nothing
