Picture Past


A photo or a snapshot is... A picture of the past...To
help preserve some memory... As long as it may last...
It is a certain likeness we... may never see again... As
youthful and as wonderful... As everything was then...
Or it may be a recent view... Of old or middle age... For
children or grandchildren as... They turn another page
... Each one has some important place... However small
it seems... Inside the family album of... Our memories
and dreams... It is a preservation of... The days we used
to know... Familiar faces yesterday... And those of long
ago.
