The Photograph

The Photograph

Found he the picture that he'd lost

Upon the floor it had been tossed;

The empty room although 'twas night

Had at that time just filled with light;

The figure in the photograph

Did wear a smile suppressed a laugh;

Stroked he the face with tender care

Looked up and saw her standing there;

He could not speak bereft of word

This situation seemed absurd;

He'd watched so many years ago

As she had died her spirits low;

The room was filled with chilling mist

A fitting set for such a tryst;

A ghost a man the two in tune

Lit now by the electric moon;

She came to him passed through his form

He closed his eyes his body warm;

The tears of joy fell from his eyes

His mask of pain a worn disguise;

Felt he re-born his love held true

He turned to look where she'd passed through;

But she had gone as had the mist

He touched his lips which felt as kissed;

Looked he again at photograph

The figure there once more did laugh;

But now the figure had been joined

A man himself the two conjoined.
