    Mine To Keep

    by David Knape
    In a small corner, a photo hung
    depicting them when they were young,
    So innocent, they can't disguise
    the tenderness shown in their eyes

    The photo speaks, and all connect
    hung proudly where all can reflect,
    Such youthful bliss expressed in this
    girl and boy, sharing a kiss

    Now we remember with a tear
    love they gave through all the years.
    That love expressed was filled with care
    pure kindness always theirs to share

    And though the obstacles were steep
    hand in hand, they sowed, they reaped
    Mom and Dad, loved ever so deep
    now in this small corner,
    mine to keep.
