Picture of Me

There's a picture of me That I keep in my wallet

It's a reminder of innocence

And all the things that I've lost

It's a picture of hope

A picture of the day

When I traded my dreams for practicality

It's a picture of youth

It's a picture before I grew too old too fast

It's a picture before I became jaded and worn

A picture before I became lost

A picture of me in love

A picture before reality came crashing in

A picture before I knew what bad days looked like

A picture before I knew real heartache

A picture before I knew betrayal

The last picture before I died

Because she isn't me anymore

And I miss her

And this is my love letter to myself

To say that I'm sorry

To say that I will raise a glass to her memory

And that I believe in life after death
