The pictures hang on evíry wall around
And perch upon each tabletop in show
Itís quite a crowd and memories surround
Completely bathing me in warming glow.

Politely they take turns relating days
Gone by; each tale retold pure gold contains
Despite the passing years, timeís gauzy haze,
Unscathed, their brilliant luster yet remains.

I dust them off, return each to its place
Arranging captured moments tenderly
My soul is kissed by evíry smiling face
Thatís beaming forth a cherished memory.

Within my mind dwell treasures that are real
Possessions that no thief could ever steal.

A wonderful poem, finely written.
My photographs are my most treasured possesion as well and each one tells a beautiful tale, with every smile beaming back at me.

 she said I dont know if I've ever been good enough,
and I'm a little bit rusty, and I feel like my head is caving in.
...and I dont know if I've ever been really loved by a hand thats touched me...
and I feel like somethings gonna give...
and I'm a little bit angry.

This one is so lovely, Denise...I'm so sentimental about photographs, too, and take such pleasure in selecting just the right frame for each. Such good writing, here, Denise...very touching.
