Just an old photograph...

poem by: Frank Byrne
Written on May 02, 2017

"I've lived most of my life, being a loving family man,
and I've tried to do for my loved ones, the very best that I can.
Quality time spent with my children, was so important in my life,
and I've tried most of all, to be good to my beautiful wife,
but alas one day, all there will be , just an old photograph,just a picture of me,
holding fond memories, that I hope forever will last,
memories of the good times...a nice reminder of the past."

A lovely thought Frank, but from your photograph you're doing well for an older man, and your family will love to keep this memento of you!
