Photographs
I’m all alone with
Photographs
You left me only
Photographs
of you

Photographs
of us together
Photographs
in every weather
Photographs
of you

Wish I had you to hold me tight
Instead of your photograph to kiss goodnight

Photographs
I’m all alone with
Photographs
You left me only
Photographs
of you

Going on a picnic
with you
Kissing on a park bench
with you

All I have are
Photographs
of you
Photographs
of you

Laughing at the circus
with you
Dancing in the parlor
with you
All I have are photographs
of you
Photographs
of you

Wish I had you to hold me tight
Instead of your photographs to kiss good night

Photographs
I’m all alone with
Photographs
You left me only
Photographs
of you

All I have are
Photographs
of you
