In life, there are too many memorable moments, this book records those fleeting stories and feeling, the book share with you the impossible good memories which will never appear again, I believe these poems can strengthen our confidence, enhance spirit pursuit and create the beautiful future.Life like running water does not returnLife slip away rapidly in the eyes of a busy man,Life is slow and boring in the eyes of a non-working man,Everyone's life is different,But no one will leave the life,Even if the body is dead,But the spirit is still living in the spiritual world.Life is a process.If you experience it carefully,You are no longer childish,Because the sour, sweet, bitter, spicy are price of growing up.Life is your creation,You can't abandon yourself,Because every second and point you experienced is a life,You just lack the recording life tools.We shouldn't complain about life,Although life expectation is very far away from you,Your efforts for the lives of others,Let your world is full of beauty,Let your future live forever.
