Pictures


Pictures on the wall are missing only you
I wish I could see you in my mind too
But you are gone now forever it seems
I can’t imagine you anymore in my dreams

Time only will tell what we had
Secrets we shared made me so glad
A moment in each other’s memories and heart
Little did I know we soon were to part

Albums on the shelf, no pictures of you
You have taken a part of my soul too
Heaven knows dear, my angel, my song
I sometimes ponder where we went wrong

I once hung my hopes only on you
Thinking of all we could possibly do
But you had to go following a road
That didn’t include me, so I was told

If you came back today or tomorrow
I would only say I had to follow
My heart like you once said before
Now I can see that we are no more

    If you came back today or tomorrow......

    Ha..the uncertainty of existence howls. If.....so long the procession of ifs we daily carry with our shoulders....if! !

    Pictures are more genuine than our existing dilemma. At least we can have the touch of it. But when a man stands very close to me but can't touch him, then! Much more uncertain that having. Once a legend director told... celluloid is more valuable than life.....Now can realise the moment celluloid catches, never returns on earth, no treasure can hold it again..... Poet, very consciously I try here to pass by the flow of sadness you have pictured through your writing. Well written. Put 10 out of ten.

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
