A Picture of You


your beauty
cannot be captured
by a picture-
the image isn’t true
to its form in reality.

the light
doesn’t reveal the life
in your eyes
the joy in your smile
the perfection of your face.
- - - - - -
I am lost
in the past-
sent back thinking
of greater times
and better places.

the memories linger
not forgotten
by the brain
of the man
who secretly loves you.
- - - - - -
your beauty
cannot be captured
by a picture-
