Remember to smile
when the camera
snaps that picture
of you with him

Remember to smile
when he wraps you
in his warm arms
and pulls you close

Remember to smile
for the camera
because you may
not know it yet
but this picture
will be
the last

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
