Except for this moment

It all goes away
The wind comes
The leaves blow around
The trees bend
Branches break
More leaves fall and disappear

It all goes away
The sea comes
The wave breaks
The sand gets wet
The wave retreats
The sand dries

It all goes away
The bulb sprouts
The shoots come
The stem grows
The flower blooms
The flower dies

It all goes away
It’s all temporary
Life comes
Life goes
Nothing lasts
Except for this moment

Our soul

Autumn by Philip Dodson

The night comes sooner
A chill on the air
The sense of change
The leaves are turning
Golden and red and brown

The flowers are dwindling
Hay is being harvested
The birds are heading off
The days grow shorter
The season is ending

Summer comes and it goes
Light fades to dark
Green leaves turn to brown
Life comes and goes
Autumn comes and then winter

It’s all temporary
Nothing lasts
Life becomes death
All except our soul
That is eternal like this moment
Now and our essence lasts forever
