It is a single moment
Frozen in time
Embracing an emotion
Capturing it to call upon
its beauty
Like a butterfly
caught in a hungry net
It is a mixture of happiness,
Nostalgia and regret
A reminder of better times
Perhaps a small token
of all that remains
Your only wish is to return
and do it over again
But the entity of time
is not compassionate
It allows no room for second chances
It is unforgiving
The chance has passed
All that is left is a single moment,
Frozen in time
To be gazed upon
when a faded memory
is not enough.

The author's comments:
I was looking at a picture of my grandpa from Christmas the previous year, about a month after he died. I never spent a lot of time with him, so my memories of him are few.
