A poem about love and loss
If I had a picture of you
I’d keep it to myself
Held tightly against my heart
To feel closer to you
Our bond would be strong
Strong enough to make me feel safe
If only I had a picture of you.

If I had a picture of you
I’d sleep with it on my pillow
Hoping to bring sweet dreams
Of the days we shared long ago
The fun days, holidays and time spent together
Feels like a lifetime ago now
If only I have a picture of you.

If I had a picture of you
I could stare into your deep blue eyes
Invoking memories of moments together
Fun times we shared in the sun
Loving times we shared in the cold
Making sandcastles, having snowball fights
If only I had a picture of you

If I had a picture of you
I could remember you as you were
Before you were ravaged
Before you were dying
When we had no worries
Could think of other things rather than death
If only I had a picture of you.

If I had a picture of you
I could look at it and try to remember your voice
How you used to speak to me
Your laughter,
Instead of your tears
And your final breath
If only I had a picture of you.
