There’s a picture I really like
It’s my favourite photo of me.
I look really happy and young
It was from a vacation I think
Hanging around with my friends
Clicking away on our phones
I don’t remember when it was taken
Must have been at sunset though
That’s what the shadows tell me.
It must have been Spring.
I can see the flowers behind us.
It must have been a perfect day
I can’t see any clouds in the sky
It must have been one of the best days
My smile is wide and my eyes are twinkling
But I don’t remember
the noises of the cars that passed by
Not the jokes that made me snort,
or the smell of the tulips.
I thought these pictures would help
So I kept clicking away
Recording every moment
Looking back I now realise
Life is much more richer
