This poem was written on July 31, 1997.
Time Is Short and The Water Rises
Life is short and sweet,
So you have to move on
There is no time to waste
We have to move on
Before the water covers our heads
And everything will be over
Because time is short
And the water may rise above our heads
Don’t hang on to the past
It will only bring you down
Even when things are hard
Hang onto my hand
And we will surely rise
Above the turbulent tide.
