This Picture’s Incomplete

Take a picture, a snapshot in time.
Over the years the picture stays the same.
But you and I moved on to different things.
And you never knew.
You never knew my feelings.
You never knew my feelings for you.

Take a picture of another time and place.
Wake up to begin another day,
Where you and I, we walk this path alone.
And we never know just where the road will go.

Pictures in my mind go on and on.
The memories I’ve filed away for so long.
One by one they gather dust so thick that you can’t see.
I’m kneeling at your feet.
This picture’s incomplete.

Over and over I see you in my mind.
And now I wonder if it’s time to leave the page.
I’m terrified of opening my heart.
Of being known and being cast aside.

Pictures in my mind go on and on.
The memories I’ve filed away for so long.
One by one they gather dust so thick that you can’t see.
I’m kneeling at your feet.
This picture’s incomplete.
