Timeless, It Seems

The beat of a heart
The quiet babbling of a hidden river
The best friends' friendship
The happiness of little playing chickens

Until the grasp of death takes hold
Until a drought destroys it
Until a fight and a lie
Until a fox tears them apart

The precious snowflake from heaven
The warm, cozy fire keeping you warm
The drawing pad with your drawings
The precious stone of your mother's

Until it melts to water
Until it burns your house to ashes
Until it gets thrown into a pond
Until it gets dropped and shattered forever
