Help Tsunami Victims ©

Van Tan Ngo
Quebec, Canada
2004

It is a beautiful dawn 26 December 2004
Sunshine brightens all the red roses
Thousands of people are watching the beach
The Indian ocean calms in pure blue

Suddenly water turns into black
The ground then starts to shake
Water rises higher and higher
Then come huge waves twenty meters

Smash the shore sinking humans
Destroying structures, trees and land
Then pull out people's lives into dark sea
Eighty thousand without a chance!

We have seen it all on TV
On the beach thousands of bodies
We have heard loud cries and weeps
Penetrate our hearts, so deep!

Our compatriot with his lover went for vacation
To enjoy the beach in Phu Ket, Thailand
The honey moon that didn't last
Now gone his life, she alone returns

No man is an island
Please hand out and raise more funds
No matter how small your efforts
Will relieve millions from sufferance
