Picture He Held (poem)

Updated on February 17, 2016

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
