POETICbug_I do not wish forever
If life was forever,
There would be no Fall,
No leaf would crumble,
In this world's fancy ensemble.

There is grace in leaving,
Like beauty that Autumn brings,
And for every leaf that is gone,
A new one would be born.

I do not wish forever and live alone,
Writing epitaph on loved ones tombstone,
I pray to stay enough,
With compassion and love.

But when I am gone far away,
I wish my memories may
linger without any grumble,
In this world's fancy ensemble.

  1. True. Till the time one lives, live with compassion and love. Good take on the prompt.

  2. That was a unique one, even i echo the same words...though many would think otherwise.

  3. I guess it takes a lot of deep insight and understanding of life to say I do not want life forever...and that's a beautiful thought to live life by! nice lines!!

  4. Nice! :) Immortality got its disadvantages, no matter how glorified it is ;)

  5. :) You just spoke my mind, what fun life would be if we had everything & every being exist forever!
    There is a reason God created both life and death.
    I like your take on the theme,
    you have a really beautiful Blog Salvwi. :)


    1. Thank you so much Megha. :) Appreciate your compliments.

  6. I wish to disappear like a shooting star,
    and face the death which would heal all my scars.

    Now these which I read,
    seem like a medicine for those who read.

    As right now, at these words I gaze,
    wonder how easily, can they amaze.


    God bless you.
