All The Gold

He came back, but not to keep
He came back over and over again, but not to stay
Just to view her pretty face and feel if she still loved him
He didn’t want to lose that loving pretty face
forever
“You are so beautiful, I could look at this picture for hours. Problem is, I keep running out of Kleenex.”
Picture
Not the real
“Are you crying?”
A card with pictures he had taken
and words he had written
She could see herself without a picture
She didn’t feel very pretty when he kept loving her with cards and bitter wishes
“All the gold and wealth on Earth, could never equal memory’s worth”
and pictures he had taken when they were together
looking through each other’s eyes
He came back over and over again, but not to stay
He came back, but not to keep
He’ll see her pretty face no more
Gone with bitter wishes.
