The Photo Album

by Spiros Zafiris

she finally found
and dusted off
the photo album of us,
kept in a box in her laundry room

and on her dining room table
it awaited my perusal

all that love of long ago
now, alas, rekindled
prompted, and I let through,
the briefest, almost inaudible, wail

before smiling
with not-to-worry eyes,
and turning to my eagerness
to lose myself in every page of the early days,
of this remarkable dream come true
