About the Poem

Things always change, but, if we look hard enough, we can find that some things do last forever.

The Best Chance

Every building that's built
Will someday come down
It will age, it will buckle
It will crash to the ground

Every car that we drive
Will someday just die
The engine, the brakes
The gas tank runs dry

Every shirt that we purchase
All the clothes that we wear
They will fade and unravel
They will stain, they will tear

Every tree that's above us
Never matter how tall
It's time too will come
And then it will fall

Every day that we wake
When the sun shines so bright
We're sure we can count on
The darkness of night

Nothing lasts forever
So it seems to be true
But nothing's ever had a better chance
Than the love I feel for you
