Nothing Lasts Forever

by~hellbaby~©

On a rainy dreary night
The sun broke through the sky
Love and joy and happiness
Were brought before my eyes,
Peace and self-contentment
Were present as never before,
It was that special someone
Who opened up the door
But nothing lasts forever,
Nothing ever will
My happiness is gone
And my life is standing still
The sky is getting dark again,
The rain starts pouring down,
The love I felt inside
Is lost and can’t be found
There is something I can do
To make the sun come out
The only thing that holds me back
Is the shadow of a doubt
Nothing lasts forever,
Nothing ever will
There’s emptiness inside
That I can’t seem to fill
Is it time
To let love grow?
Or should I stop
And just say no?
Do I stay?
Or run and hide?
There’s not much time
For me to decide
Nothing lasts forever
Nothing ever will
My happiness is gone
I really need a thrill
Once it’s gone
It’s gone forever
Lately it feels
Like it’s now or never
I can't think straight
I feel so confused
I don’t want to wind up
Just being used
Nothing lasts forever
Nothing ever will
My happiness is gone
There’s loneliness I can’t kill
Once it happens
It can’t be undone
Childhood fading
With the setting sun
This feeling inside
I cannot deny
This feeling that tells me
It's my time to fly
Nothing lasts forever
We all must change and grow
When the time is right
My heart will tell me so!
