The old picture on the wall, framed.
A special moment in time, contained.
Youth and smiles caught in time,
years gone by, oh such a crime.
Birthday cakes with candles to blow,
babies in prams how quick they do grow.
Holiday sun and a white washing sea,
a constant reminder when it was just you and me.
Weddings are captured, with rings placed on fingers.
Memories to hand, when in our minds they no longer linger.
The funniest of moments, like caught when you’re sleeping,
placed in an album for a forever of keeping.
A beautiful sight, like the sun at first light,
or a view from a mountain that takes your breath away from height.
Just a small piece of paper can stir so much emotion,
when Love ones return like a heart-warming potion.
