The Portrait

Reflections on the water
mirror images in my mind
speed set, diaphragm wide open
click-I capture your picture

Have no fear
I won’t steal your spirit
this portrait is
for no one but me

I hide it away in my treasure chest of memories
where it will be kept safe
and if it were on paper
the ravages of time would see
it yellow and fade

Ah no, dear friend
this one
tucked safely inside my heart
this one will live forever
