Moments – caught in time
Now that time has passed
And as only the wisdom of age allows,
Examine what has transpired.
Do it with new eyes
Blessed with humility, purity and tenderness
Time gives the gift of perspective
Understanding, Sadness and Remorse
Who can you tell? The secret you see reflected there.
Thoughts draped in shame and worry
Expressions of disdain and moroseness
Such a folly.
Who could be convinced that underneath there was happiness?
You will try, for posterity, to remember
That which you know now,
That which you could not be convinced of then
You are beautiful
Photographer, I remain haunted by lyrics and regret
Never willing to accept you might not take another picture
I will smile.
When the time comes, I promise to smile.
