The Photograph - Poem by Lee McVicar

Some people say a photograph
Can steal a persons soul,
A moment time has all but lost,
Which leaves you less than whole

But I believe a picture shows,
How happy that we were,
A time when I was drunk with love,
A time when I'm with her

So take my picture all you like,
No need to steal my soul,
I'll give it to you piece by piece,
Your love shall hold it whole.
