Picture He Held (poem)

He turned to a picture he held too tight

Here was his meaning purpose for the day

All he had dreamed of wishes away

Here was his bride and source of delight


She was the heartbeat which set him astray

She was the glow behind all hopeful light

Ponderous marvels could this one ignite

What took tomorrow and turned it to grey


As proof of her love she’d do anything

Desires which he had were filled to the brim


The whole world she’d change if smile it could bring

Yes even her self if times got too dim


And here was the truth which brought on this sting

The picture he held had turned into him
