Fast Forward

Looking at old home movies

recorded on tape,

everyone is looking healthy

and in great shape.

Fast forward the years

and not many remain

and those who do

spend their days in pain.

Forever beautiful

on a television screen

their lives never turned out

like they dreamed.

One after another

they saw loved ones depart

and each time it broke

another piece of their heart.

They would say a prayer

for them to rest in peace

but wishing they could rewind

and stick back the pieces.
