Souvenirs – a Décima

Dissolved in watercolored hues–
the acts that touched, the words that soothed,
the days that stuck, the nights that moved.
And with the years the paint came loose.
The images, remain in use —
the joy, the gains all met with smiles;
the lost, the cuts, the days of trials.
Stacked albums sing a life’s refrain,
keepsakes of love, looks of disdain.
A trail of life — bright and diffuse.
