Proof of time passing
A picture you’ve never seen
Showing up somehow

Reminding you what
And who you cared about then
Instant in a frame

That might have been lost
Had time not taken its toll
Inside of boxes

Always left unpacked
Until the moment occurs
To take out again

For light to reveal
It was never even lost
But waiting to know

What it was when it first shone
