Writing In Light
By: Noel N. Villarosa
July 18, 2015


Boxes of photographs in the closet
As life goes on, it pile up in our mindset
Hoping to catch every bit of the good times
You’ve been there; again you live within its confines

Ageing as it appear, but fresh memories linger on
Every picture tells story, evocative sensation will come upon
Rain and shine, time elapsed unwittingly
Funny stories would spring up and laugh uncontrollably

For tin types pictures, a tracing of who they were
Some had writing on the back with dates and dedication preferred
A timely choice to look at your first birthday attire
With friends and relatives gathered around in a choir

Old photos from graduation and prom
Be amazed of how friends’ image had transformed
Capture a moment and freeze it in time forever
Only memories will remind as a quick refresher

Pose a picture with loved ones for time will steal them tomorrow
Old familiar places and happenings that you would still know
Each frame becomes precious possessions of one’s life
Turn the album’s page and read each moment’s writing in light
