Forever Pages
~*Marge Tindal*~

You smile at me
from the well-worn pages
of an album of precious memories
Kodak'd in hues of black and white
I smile in colorful recall of a moment
The shutter has captured you for always
pasting you on forever pages in my heart
Time marches on
until the magic of the camera commands

*halt*
Then time stands still
~ forever ~
I flip through you
caressing each and every moment of time
that you smiled into the lens of my insistence
Trying to make sense of why you aren't here
but thanking God that you were
Bless you for the smiles
~ forever ~

*Inspired by the nostalgic writing of
the sister-of-my-heart, Martie~
Thank you, dear.

Well you two sure compliment each other, and I am sure she would say you inspire her as well, as you both inspire me to be better! This was wonderful, and it made me smile, as looking at my albums always does that too!

I just don't understand why Martie gets all these tributes. I mean, sure, she is very intelligent and hard-working and a good wife, not to mention being very pretty and she can write poetry that goes straight to one's heart and touches the soul and, ok, she has the integrity of a priest and is probably the best friend one could ever have...but, take those things away and she's nuttin'!! So what's the big deal, Marge?

Margie gal, I don't have the words for how much this touches me... or how accurately you've defined the need for pictures really being the need for the person... a way to hold them in the only way possible. *S* This brings tears... it's a beautiful addition to my library!
