Hi Kanhaiya, 

The poem is written in the first person and hence, the word 'I' refers to the brook. The brook seems to chatter musically over a stony creek bed. Humans have a life span and hence cannot live forever, but the brook seems to be immortal and hence, can 'go on forever'. The word 'brimming' refers to an overflowing river.
