I want to like the ephemeral, because it sounds pretty, but words will break your heart because they aren't always what they seem. 

For isn't ephemeral a euphemism for death? But life is ephemeral, and life is beautiful. If life is both beautiful and ephemeral, than is the ephemerality too not beautiful? The fleetingness of life is a characteristic of life. Life and death are not separate, death is simply the end of  life--inextricable from the thing.
