A Photograph of You - A Response to Brenda Arledge Word Prompt

Juliet is a content writer who has a passion for writing poetry, she loves expressing her deepest thoughts through writing.

Remembering Our Loved Ones in Heaven

I would like to dedicate this poem to all people whose loved ones already in Heaven. I was a little emotional while writing this poem because this pandemic has been really a tough and challenging time. A few months ago, I heard the sad news from my hometown that saddened my heart.

The sad news was about the passing of my aunt who, unfortunately, died because of COVID-19. Sadly, she was buried right away without formal burial due to the caused of her death. I haven't seen my aunt for years, and it was so sad that I never got a chance to say goodbye to her, even for the last time.

Treasure Every Moment with Your Loved Ones

I also remember those people, who were so close to me, who unfortunately passed away already. Sadly, I also never got a chance to see them and say goodbye to them, even for the last time. I was not there and far away from my hometown. My heart breaks every time I remember those people.

In my heart, they just seemed alive, and I always recall their happy faces. It's just so sad because the last time I saw those people, they were still okay and full of life, and we had happy moments together. I really never expected that those moments become memories now. Every time I think about going home to my hometown, it really hurts me to think that I will never see those faces again.

Life is short, so always treasure those moments with your loved ones. Make each moment count. Always remind them how much you love them and how much they really mean to you.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words


"A Photograph of You"

I still remember those sweet smiles,

Memories of you seem never to fade.

Those precious moments with you,

That always flashing on my mind.

I wish I could bring back the time,

When we were still with each other.

Just like those days, we used to be.

I remember those unending laughter.

But all I can do now is,

Looking at your photograph.

Reminiscing those memories,

That you have left behind.

Looking back on all those days,

When I could still see your smile.

Capturing all those precious pictures,

That really worth a thousand words.

All I have now is photograph of you,

That keeps reminding me of you.

Remembering those moments,

That turns into memories now.

I may not see your face again,

But I will remember your smile.

I will never hear your voice again,

But I will remember your laughs.

I will always cherish those moments,

Treasuring those precious memories.

You may be gone from my sight,

But you are never gone in my heart.

"Photograph" by Ariel Rivera
