Photos On My Wall
Many photos on my wall
Those happy, smiling faces,
Children young and Oh! So small
Memories, no time erases
Babes in arms, cuddled and kissed,
First ice cream, and days at school,
Loved ones departed, so missed,
Yet others sit around a pool.
Looking at those pictures now,
Brings back those days of leisure,
Wedding gowns, “I do” endow,
You, with all my worldly treasure
An empty space, what was there?
See, it’s dropped behind the frame.
Gaze upon a face so dear,
That man so loved, I took his name.
Many photos on my wall,
Reminders of all that’s passed,
Even if I lose recall
They’ll prompt, help memory last.
