I clearly remember all the details of spending that last night with you in the hospital.
I watched you suffered
as you moaned in pain.
I hold your hand endlessly, trying to ease your pain.
I asked for medical attention
but they did not come up with anything effective.
All I could do was to sit close by, praying for you.
In the morning, you went away and we have to part.
God finally eased your pain
but broke my heart.
It takes millions of years to create the picturesque environment of the beautiful lakes in Jiuzhaigou, China.
The placid and serene lakes there are known for their mirror like reflection. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom of the lakes.
Water with calcium in it flows through the area creating bund like structures and series of terraces.
The water is so blue as it has no living plants in there; trees fallen over in the lake are progressively calcified.
Now, everything is destroyed.
The waterfalls are gone, the bunds disappeared.
Perhaps, the area will never recover . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
