Fleeting

People think of things that seem permanent.

Statues in their honour.

Names and faces to live on after you are gone.

A palace built so grandly.

A place of worship for people to journey to.

A story or song written because of you.

So why then does

A friendly wave that goes by so fast

and yet is most remembered?

The smiling face that filled our hearts

and helps others endure the hardships.

Permanence does not last.

15 minutes of fame

and then who remembers you now?
