Years From Now

Years From Now

Someday, years from today, you'll be sitting by the fire, trying to warm your old, creaking bones, and your dry, wrinkled hands.

You'll be starting to nod towards sleep, and your itchy, heavy, drooping eyes will glance up to spot the dusty old photo album on the bookshelf; that aged, forgotten album, which you haven't cracked open for so many years, its presence will catch you by surprise.

Removing it from its ancient, unnoticed and untouched home, you'll sit again before the crackling orange fire, and place the dusty album in your blanketed lap; your leathery hand wiping the dust from the album's old black cover.

As you slowly begin to turn the yellowed, crackly, stiff pages, you'll stop at the picture that causes the hair on the back of your neck to stand erect, and the goosebumps to rise on your freckled, aged arms. Your lips will start to tremble, and your eyes will begin to mist, as your old, shaky finger gently strokes the forgotten photo, slowly tracing the face that once, long ago, made your heart dance with joy, and your eyes sparkle with the blissful abandonment of young love.

Someday, years from today, you'll come across that old picture of me, and you'll remember the love; the happiness we once shared, and you'll shed a tear for what could have been; should have been.
You'll smile for what was, but weep for what wasn't, and you'll not remember the reasons why.
