Every day the sun rises,
Every day the sun sets
Every day someone is born,
Everyday someone dies
It is the natural circle of life
Everything dies at one point,
But what if you never do
What if you stand there,
watching time pass
As people grow older,
and eventually die
While you never age,
And continue to live
What if everyone you knew,
slowly wrinkled and aged,
while you never looked a day older
What if everyone you met,
eventually left you behind,
leaving you with nothing left
What if you found someone,
you really loved,
but had to watch them,
grow old and die
while you stayed young
surviving despite the ages
What if you had given up on the world
given up trying to meet people,
get to know anyone,
get to love someone
but no matter what you did,
or how much time passed,
you couldn't die
What if you were,
forever and always
immortal

Love this. <33 
It's so true that immortality would be a curse to any who have someone they love. <3

a little girl meets a strange family to find out their strange secret. they keep the fountain of youth hidden so no one else has to suffer their fate.

Yes. Being immortal sounds like it would be wonderful, but the novelty would soon wear off no matter how much you wanted to live forever
