A poem about time and change.

Background

This is a very short poem I wrote in 1988 that was published in my high school’s art and literary magazine. I hope you enjoy the poem, and my selection of pictures to go with it.

Au Revoir

I love this world
Yet, I know
Love is never enough,
to keep anything,
forever…

-Donald Raab
