Portraits

 

What secrets and truths

Do old portraits hold

What stories were lost

Before they were told

What history rests

Inside antique frames

What were their given

And family names

What would they say

About life, they lived

What advice

Would they likely give

What would they change

If they could live again

What was left unfinished

When they said amen

What clues can be found

Within their eyes

What words were unspoken

Sentimental or wise

What secrets and truths

Do old portraits hold

Answers are locked

Inside frames of gold

Thanks for stopping by!
