Take the Photo
Poem for Day 271 – 20150929
If I could go back to take the photo.
Turn back all the years with the camera.
We would be younger than we are now,
reliving the moments that were meant to last.
Siblings and elders together again,
mother and father and grand alike,
paternal and adopted and step included
captured in memory of the photo.
First met, first kiss, first love of mine,
distant acquaintance now by the years,
perhaps gone or feelings gone sour,
photo bring the past back from lore.
The crowd together before the partings,
the deaths and distant wanderings,
could a better group be found again
without the help of the photo's hand?
This photo is all I beg of God,
to visit that time would be blessing,
to see them again and feel their hugs
in the photo's image of life relived.
