Photographs

 

They stare back at you from the wall

With each passing year, they get harder to recall

Forever silent, forever frozen in time

They’re memories getting harder to find

They take your mind back to when they lived outside the frames

It’s comforting to have them near, but it’s just not the same

You wish you could go back to that time and place

But it’s forever frozen, like the smile upon their face

It’s sad to realize that ‘Someday, that’ll be me.”

Hopefully, it’s a long way off, before the end you’ll see

Faces radiating with hopes for the future

Now nothing but echoes of the past, a past so pure,

nothing to show their struggles, on the way to their dreams

nothing of their actual lives, or so it seems

Just smiling, happy faces left for our eyes,

in a $3.99 frame; in a handy framing size
