A filmstrip is all that is left

Frame to frame

Moments between us


We had the fortune

Of knowing that your life

Would be cut short


And we had the grace

To talk openly

About why and how it would end


We were no strangers to fear

As you walked closer

To the edge before it collapsed


The filmstrip is something I treasure

And think back to those precious moments

When we paused


Knowing our time was less than we wanted

And pain was sure to win

And you or I would say in that pause-


I’m taking a picture
