Capturing moments

Pictures they capture our moments through life,
Like the day when you marry your husband/wife.
Helps to relive those memories like a story,
To capture our hearts or revisit OLD history.

A picture could be that of a loved one,
Someone you've lost a treasure you found.
Remembering last words “I Love You”,
Then carry their picture, so they will guide you

The memories you have live on within us,
Emotions can become real through a picture we trust.
Sometimes a picture is a memory we erase,
Throughout life we make new memories to fill that space.

Or the precious moments we have throughout time,
With Social Media and News it’s a nice break from all the war and crime.

Like to see the moon at its brightest light,
Or a clear night of stars that twinkle in the night.
Maybe the suns going down leaving that crimson sky,
You capture these moments without a reason why.

You can guarantee a picture won’t let you down,
Showing you its meaning without any sound.
Only to capture the truth, what you see is what you get,

Just Like a card game, you see your cards you place your bet.
Few moments later all bets are done,
Then show those cards to see who won.
You check in close while Antes go up,
You hope to see and play their bluff.

To capture a storm on that beautiful day,
As the clouds roll in with the darkest of grey.
You capture the brewing’s of the aftermath,
Outside your house alongside the garden path.

From your baby's first steps to marrying your soulmate,
With all this who knew pictures could be that great!
