Black and White Images

I think of you in black and white
As images fill my mind
Of old wrinkled photographs
And dark, shadowed smiles

A time that no longer exists
A picture that deceives
For the world was not painted
In the black and white we see

Your world back then was much the same
As the world we live in today
Colors as vivid as springtime
A bright world to run and play

My mind often attempts to stray
Outside the printed lines
I long to see you in my world
But fail each time I try

I long to reach into the photos
To touch, to feel, to hear
To become a part of the past
From which I did appear

The images that you’ve captured
Have imprisoned you in time
For you will live forever in them
Embedded in my mind

What will I leave for my children
And their children yet to be
May the images that I give to them
Paint a true picture of me

May they hold them dearly
A thread to guide their way
Real people and a past that
Unlike images will not fade
