    I found this photograph
    Underneath the broken picture glass
    Tender face of black and white
    Beautiful, a haunting sight
    Looked into an angel’s smile
    Captivated all the while
    From the hair and clothes she wore
    I’d place her in between the wars

    Was she willing when she sat
    And posed the pretty photograph?
    Save her flowering and fair
    The days to come, the days to share
    A big smile for the camera
    How did she know?
    The moment could be lost forever
    Forever more

    I found this photograph
    Stashed between the old joist walls
    In a place where time is lost
    Lost behind, where all things fall
    Broken books and calendars
    Letters script in careful hand
    Music too, a standard tune by
    Some forgotten big brass band

    From the threshhold what’s to see
    Of our brave new century?
    The television’s just a dream
    The radio, the silver screen
    A big smile for the camera
    How did she know?
    The moment could be lost forever
    Forever more

    Was her childhood filled with rhymes
    Stolen hooks, impassioned crimes?
    Was she innocent or blind
    To the cruelty of her time?
    Was she fearful in her day
    Was she hopeful, did she pray?
    Were there skeletons inside
    Family secrets, sworn to hide?
    Did she feel the heat that stirs
    The fall from grace of wayward girls?
    Was she tempted to pretend
    The love and laughter, ’til the end?
