The photo’s of our daughter
She is sitting on a rock.
Her back is to the camera
She’s the only one in this shot.
The Alps are in the background
The snow powders all the tops.
The sky is pristine blue above
With white whispers float on by.
The river bed is wide and flat.
The water crystal clear.
Her shadows stretches into it
But it doesn’t know she’s there.
The world is full of people
Yet here she sits alone.
This expansive view is hers right now
And for however moments long.
What thoughts are running through her head?
What ponderings go on?
They’re hers to have. They’re hers to keep
From now, forever on.
