A school photograph buried in layers
of scrap and dust finds its way on
a Facebook wall.
Those solemn promises of lasting friendships
stayed behind the red n grey school walls
Never to be found.
A blue muffler that fell on the ground
for catching a missing bus
was lost forever.
Tears of friends that had dried up
Were found in a flower between pages
of a musty old course book.
Some laughter, some giggles
from the back benchers, shushed
in the voices of the past.
And yet when you think of that time
It has a halo hovering over it.
Of childhood memories wrapped around
In sunshine of warm smiles
Some lost, some found.
P.S. Facebook has been a wonderful way of catching up with old friends. One such friend posted an old class photograph on her wall and it inspired me to write this poem.
