N for ... ...

Just sharing a poem

Nothing lasts forever.

Nothing lasts forever,
nothing stays the same,
The person I was yesterday
is surely gone today.
That's why I take a picture
and keep it in my drawer,
so I may take a peep
at the ghost
of who I was before. 

- Ruth Walters


  1. This somehow makes me go back to being a child :( :(

  2. I love the sentiment. If we can keep in mind who we were yesterday, we can keep getting better today. Wonderful share. :)

  3. Hey, congrats on Leibster! And, wow, what a great poem. Nothing lasts forever, but those things we build do tend to get stronger over time. I don't mind things changing, as long as they're growing in the positive way.

  4. I enjoyed Ruth Walters' poem. Thank you for sharing it.

  5. Hi Sheethal,

    Lovely poem this is.
    Thanks for visiting my poems and more happy that you like them.

  6. That's why I keep a journal and write a blog!

    I am working on my Liebster post, hun. I have 9 nominees...just need 2 more! Thanks so much again and again!

  7. Haunting poem, especially if you preferred the old version of yourself.

  8. This is so true! The only constant thing in this world is change.

  9. Quick question, dear - can I call you Susan or is it Sheethal?

  10. this is terrific! Made me smile ! Have a lovely day!

  11. Ok, Susan it is!
    As for RAKing on my birthday - here's the follow up post of what I actually did: http://brandysbustlings.blogspot.ca/2013/02/follow-up-29-raks-for-my-29th-on-jan-29.html

  12. That is such a true sentiment! We do change in very small ways every day. In fact, if you get technical about it, your brain changes slightly each time you have a thought, and your body constantly changes, as cells in your body are replaced each day. You also eat, degrade or grow, etc. So many tiny changes. It would actually be cool to take a pic each day, and create a time-lapse video from it, to show yourself age. :)

  13. Great poem. So true. Things are always shifting and changing.

  14. A beautiful poem indeed - thank you for sharing this! (smile)

  15. When I read the poem I remembered the quote that tormented me to no end in my teen years. "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.” (Heraclitus) I didn't so much mind the river changing, but I very much liked the "me" and didn't want to change!

  16. Thats such a beautiful poem.

    Thanks for sharing

  17. I really like that poem. Thanks for sharing it! Congrats on the Liebster!

  18. Love it! Live today as it will never come back again. I'm also trying to write more of our memories in order to, well, remember them better: Can We Strengthen Our Memories?
