Photos of the Mind


What's never been recorded
In the history of time
Are the moments of pure joy
Kept as photos of the mind
The blessings of these thoughts
Are pulled at will to ponder
To warm the aching heart
In those lonely times

So the photos of the baby
They don't tell the whole story
Printed on the failing paper
Doomed to dust over time
They don't show the love of the mama
As she stands behind the camera
Smiling at her child
Watching him in delight

Reason would surely tell you
That the baby becomes a young boy
As he learns and discovers
No longer is it the face of the mama
But a toy that makes him smile

So the photos of the baby
They don't tell the whole story
Printed on the failing paper
That will be doomed to dust over time
They don't show the love of the mama
Of whom smiles behind the camera
Smiling at her child
Watching him in delight

The glory of the story continues
A teen then into a young man
Not the mama's smile nor a toy can be given
Instead a pretty girl meets his new demands
As he stares into her eyes
The camera's shutter clicks to capture
The love that's in their hearts

So the photo's of the baby
They don't tell the whole story
Printed on the failing paper
That will be doomed to dust over time
They don't show the love of the mama
Of whom stands behind the camera
Smiling at her child
Watching him in delight

Don't be a fooled this is not the end
For you only begin again from where you start
This woman and the son bring another baby
Made from the sincerity in their hearts
More pictures for the mind
Encased forever to add to those been taken
To add more warmth to the new grandma's heart

So the photo's of the baby.....
