I hold on
Pictures with frayed edges
Smiling faces frozen in happy poses
If but for a moment
You can almost hear the conversation
“Stop poking your sister!”
“Look at the camera, act normal!”
Tears roll as I catch a glimpse of loved ones who
have gone on too soon
But through photographs, memories still seem new.
