A Poem – Week Forty-One

This poem is about the belief I had that nothing good could last. I don’t know if I still feel this way. That seems so bleak and I am more hopeful than that. This poem was written on August 4, 1997.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nothing gold can stay

Even the brightest things

Eventually fade away

There is no need to be sad

And no reason to cry

Keep your head up

When your gold says goodbye.

All gold must leave

It will eventually depart

It will fade away

Leaving an empty heart

Don’t be sad

And please don’t cry

It’s a natural fact

Gold will say goodbye.
