Last Picture

As they smiled,

did they realise

this would be

their last picture taken,

as the put their faces together

did one imagine

he would be forsaken.

Left to face the world

on his own,

to sit by the fire

each night all alone

and stare at this last picture

hanging upon his wall,

a reminder of happier times

before death came to call.

He now counts the hours

waiting for its return

so he may be reunited with

the one for whom he yearns.
