Precious Water

This poem represents the thoughts of a girl who was stranded in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. She left this note behind before dying of thirst. "PRECIOUS WATER"

Water water all around,
But not a drop to drink! Ahh! 
Now I know fresh water, is as precious as a diamond ring! 
Taps running, overflowing tanks, are such a huge waste!
Everyone should stop making, such terrible mistakes! 
Remember a single drop of water, could give me a chance to live! 
"SAVING WATER" is the best gift, To humanity you can give!!
