Camera Memories

Memories locked inside photographs

A boy trapped in time

It’s a whirlpool of past treats that only he knows

That only his father knows

 

It was always for you

His father always said between terms of affection

The boy always responded with a snap of the camera

Constantly sealing the moment forever

It was always for you—for you always

 

On a lonely night filled with monsters and things bumping in the night

I anxiously waited and waited for my knight

Flashing in yellow, he appeared

Papa with a camera and a sweet cookie with tea

My first frozen camera memory

 

It was always for you

His father always said between terms of affection

The boy always responded with a snap of the camera

Constantly sealing the moment forever

It was always for you—for you always

 

Now he’s grown up

Now I see less of him

But I never forget the memories locked in his camera

That we made together day by day

I know he misses me too

Busy with work and appealing to all

But he never forgets the cookies and tea

 

It was always for you

His father always said between terms of affection

The boy always responded with a snap of the camera

Constantly sealing the moment forever

It was always for you—for you always
