What remains

Frozen faces and frozen eyes

In black and white photographs,

This is what remains of life,

Once full of hopes and laughs;

A crumbling piece of paper,

Filled with words and ideas;

Footprints in the sand at the beach,

Washed away by the morning tide;

Memories in the minds of others,

Fading and disappearing with time.

Nothing lasts forever in a cosmic casino,

Where everyone loses in the end;

What remains is to capture every moment

Without judgment or expectation or ego.
