An aged photograph of a relative with her cherished daughter,
sitting by a calm, placid lake on a
Wonder, joy, and amusement filled
both of their unblemished, youthful faces –
A family beginning its nascent, hopeful journey
through the mysteries of eternity.
Time has passed since then.
Seasons have transformed –
Flowers have blossomed,
Memories have washed
tender tears downstream.
both of their faces have changed.
Fresh, vibrant green leaves
have ripened and turned a poignant orange.
Verdure has become a visage.
The mother’s love for her daughter;
however, has remained the same.
Love endures the tumult of summer storms,
and bitter frost.
Love is timeless.
