Surfing Love

As part of being raised Hassidic, I missed some excellent movies that everybody and their brother know by heart. Occasionally, I try to catch up on old classic. They may be old to you, but they’re new to me.

Last night I watched Titanic for the first time, and was very moved by it. I will try to express my feelings with the following lines:

Like a steamer’s dart
Under the stars above
So is the heart
Steaming with love

Propelled by fire
Impelled by desire
Lasts brief
Ends in grief

Unlike a mass of metal
On the ocean bottom settle
Passionate pride
Is forever tied

What was in years build
In one night was killed
What was in one night thrilled
Was for life filled
