“Everything That Has A Beginning Has An End”

 

Title Quote: Buddha

We all love enchanting, captivating stories
From very young children to the old
Reading stories uses our imagination
We’re engrossed in how they will unfold
Books can be just a few short pages
Or go on for a whole series that offer more
But all stories have a beginning and end
The pleasure they make is what we read them for

Films and TV series capture our attention
As we sink into and establish the plot
Our senses are bombarded with emotions
Through characters, music and the scenery shot
A film lasts for a short time, only an hour or two
A complete series can go on for a year or more
But all films and series have a beginning and end
The emotions evoked are what we watch them for

Some people enjoy enhancing nature
Planting various seeds into a flower-pot
They nurture and appreciate the beauty
Whether a lavender bush or forget-me-not
Flowers develop wondrous hues and fragrance
Scattering their elegance in gardens and more
But all flowers have a beginning and end
Their pure beauty is what we grow them for

One of nature’s incredible, bountiful joys
Is the variety of trees that grow everywhere
Their magnificence and majestic presence
Is enhanced with the lessons they share
Strength, flexibility, change, importance of roots
They give us oxygen and so much more
But all trees have a beginning and end
Vital life-enhancement is what we need them for

Over our lives most of us share some time
With a pet who becomes a family friend
It doesn’t matter what the animal type
It’s the faithful love that they can send
Companionship, loyalty, non-judgement
Whatever we share, they give so much more
But all animals have a beginning and end
Their companionship is what we adore them for

And so we come to the point of these words
The hardest experience one day we all must face
When our nearest and dearest loved ones pass
Will we be able to abide it with good grace?

The simple, pure beauty of our family and friends
We enrich our lives together with the pleasures we make
Our love and companionship is vital life-enhancement
As the emotions evoked bring our Hearts and Souls Awake

“Everything That Has A Beginning Has An End
Make Your Peace With That And All Will Be Well”
The Buddha’s words are an essential principle of life
To enable us when the time comes to say ‘Farewell’
