Frozen Past

Updated on December 2, 2011

Another glossy card.

People stare frozen at me.

Some are smiling.

Others are talking.

Still others are dancing.

Fun times being shared.

Priceless acts being remembered.

Always seeming happy.

Timeless in age.

Never dying.

Why am I sad,

When I look at pictures I took?

      Ah, I get sad too. We're sad because our heart aches knowing we can never be there again. Nothing like the passage of time, huh? And the people that we love having moved on to the other side, well that just hurts all the time.

      Thank you Nia. I'm glad you liked it. It just popped in my head this morning as I was listening to classical music. Smile!

      I love looking at photographs. Wondering what I or someone else was thinking at the time. Lovely poem Carlon.
