Old pictures keep the present
And the future in touch with the past.

                      Like branches
                        on a tree
                      We all grow in
                      But our roots 
                      Remain the same


Come, look with me inside this drawer,
  In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures,black and white,
   Faces proud, still, serene.

  I wish I knew the people,
 These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories
  Are lost among my socks

I wonder what their lives were like, 
  How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
  I'll never know their ways.

  If only someone had taken time
To tell who,what,where,or when,
  These faces of my heritage
  Would come to life again

  Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today?
  The faces and the memories
  Someday to be passed away?

  Make time to save your stories,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
 Or someday you and yours could be
    The strangers in the box
