Dad - Captured in my heart


I framed you in my lens

Father and daughter- friends,

I captured your style

I captured your smile,

Snapshots of you - part of me

Printed deep in my memory,

My album of life - at each stage

References you on every page,

I zoomed into your love - your essence

Was snap happy in your presence,

You captured my respect - my admiration

To love you needed no persuasion,

But now you are still - the shutter closed

Leaving me confused and exposed,

Forever captured in my lens

Father and daughter - dear friends

Painfully we must exist apart

But forever freeze framed in my heart.
