A picture of me

Someone sent a picture of me

Smiling. As I used to be

Natural in a natural light

Looking out from black and white

I sat and stared into the past

I tried to understand at last

One life cut in two by time

Was it his life? Was it mine?

I tried to whisper in his ear

He would not listen, would not hear

I tried to light the path ahead

He would not see, would not be led

I thought I knew the boy I saw

But I don’t think so any more

A memory from way back when

I didn’t even know him then

One thought on “A picture of me
