WEDDING PHOTOGRAPH

It was 16 September 1947,
wedding day,
bride sitting,
groom standing,
bride's full smile,
groom's half-smile,
mother,
father,
more than sixty years ago,
before the seven kids,
before he abandoned the family,
a black and white photograph
showing me this much is true -
my mother had a beautiful heart and soul
and she looked lovely at twenty-two.
