“Nothing Gold Can Stay”
is a truth larger than the sun.
From your first breath I watched you
then suddenly you are one.
I have felt acceptance, love and pain
during the span of your shine.
Still, for now I am blessed
knowing you are mine.
So I drop to my knees to play
and, perhaps, to pause and pray,
knowing in this world,
“Nothing Gold Can Stay”.
