Here to Stay

We long
For moments
That only live
In glimpses of

As I tell the stories
And, flip through
The images
I try to return
To the memories we wore

We ache
For the past
Yet often forget
The photographs beautiful
We will not return there

Our lives intersect
With so many people
Only some will stay
Others will depart

Do not keep returning
My dear
To the photographs
That no longer bear meaning
Lift up your eyes from the film
So many images are passing by
They go
Click, snap, snap

Will you long for this moment
Before it’s too late?
You may never know today
If you keep
Your eyes on the past
So, let go
Look around
This beautiful moment
Is here to stay
