a Tattoo

by In All Our Years

is the ultimate expression onto the canvas of your life,
displaying the visual of who or what you care for,
showing the world what excites you.

is a flare when you are lost at sea,
and deep inside … do want to be found.

cradles that which you love,
when out of reach-

embeds them in the canvas of your life,
immortalizing their thoughts, their colors-

holds them as close to you as can be-
knowing clear well that nothing lasts forever,
but you can … every waking day,
imagine that perhaps it does.
