Nothing is Immortal in this World

Nothing is immortal in this world,
Yes, there are people and things ,
That are difficult to find,
Hard to procure,
Tough to sustain.
And if you get them,
Identify their worth,
And able to sustain too,
They may last a life time,
And beyond too.
But being indelible to last forever!
Nothing is so strong, so deep.
Even the marks on heart fade,
Even the stones sometimes lie.
Even the ageless tales lose their appeal.
We change with passing times.
To change with the happening vie.
Metals get moulded differently
Stars change their sky.
Then to think that love will be
imperishable for ages to come,
It may prove to be day dream that will never come true.
So accept what you lay your hands on.
Live with it till it lasts with you,
And let it go when the charm diminishes.
Do not drag the lifeless being,
just for the sake of holding on to.
