"When life gives you lemons, bite into it and embrace the bitter taste of reality." (My own words)

Are all these pictures real?
I can’t remember if they are.
Is my memories just thoughts,
or is this who we really are?

These smiles I can’t remember
this love I once had
making laughter seem like dream
showing endless times with my dad

Tears wash over my face
while I go down this road.
I can’t tell if this is real
or something I was told

Please tell me
if I held your hand
Please tell me if I kiss your cheek
Please tell me the truth
because these lies are making me weak.

Pictures are worth a thousand words
but now I can’t speak
I want to go back to this
why did I have to blink.

Life is going so fast for me and it just feels like yesterday when she was still alive. I miss the things I did when I was younger!
