Should all Good Things Come to an End?

I don’t know when and where this rose shot out as a bud.
I don’t know when and where it blossomed.

I only know when and where I got it.
I went to the temple a few weeks back where they distribute flowers, fruits and nuts. That is the day I got this rose. I came back home and put it in a cup with some water. It stayed alive and brought beauty and happiness to me for many, many weeks.

Today, I noticed that it had completely withered away.
So, I have to throw the beauty away. Well…not in the trash can. I usually put these withered away flowers in the backyard where it can compost and lead to life yet again….some day in the future.

Like stardust.
Kind of like us.
Been in the vast universe before.
Living now.
Will be gone.
And, will be back again.

YOU: Alright Ambal. Enough with the rose RARA. What do you want me to think about for today?
ME: How much ever nurture you give it, all good things (like this rose) must come to an end. Or should they?

Moments eventually come to an End

Moments that we enjoy and find comfort in eventually come to an end.

Kind of like a good song. It is comes to an end. Well, you might play it in repeat mode for a few days. But, then eventually it ends.

Kind of like time. We want good times to last a lifetime. But, they don’t. They come to an end.

So, I savored every bit of this coffee today….because…
“All good things must come to an end”.

“All good things must come to an end” – quote was penned by Geoffrey Chaucer in his poem Troilus and Criseyde completed in mid-1380s written in the context of the tragic love story of Troilus and Criseyde -The Siege of Troy
