Photos - Poem by Jesus James Llorico

'As I look closely
At these photos
What I see clearly
Is faded youth

For bright faces then
I used to see
But now a memory
Of past beauty

These photos taken
Are now retained
And never forgotten
In hearts forever

As we slowly cling
To fading time
These photos will bring
A silent story.'
