All Things End

by Profe Steve

Mutability

Mutability Long ago I read a poem

Mutability Long ago I read a poem How things always change 

Mutability Long ago I read a poem How things always change  Too young, I laughed and doubted,

Mutability Long ago I read a poem How things always change  Too young, I laughed and doubted, Life was carved in solid rock.

Love was forever,

Love was forever, Friends would never go away,

Love was forever, Friends would never go away, Eyes would never cry.

Love was forever, Friends would never go away, Eyes would never cry. Then I held you as you died,

Love was forever, Friends would never go away, Eyes would never cry. Then I held you as you died, I wept as my world ended.

*** If you have never read Shelley's masterpiece, you can find it online. I urge you to look it up.
