I have a photo that hangs on a dream catcher beside my bed

It is a job ID badge I got a month before you died.

I am smiling, so happy that I got the job over four other people.

It’s the smile of a woman who didn’t know the pain ahead.

When the prize would be forgotten in a moment,

When you died – a rapid change in a point of view

It was a picture of a woman whose son was alive.

It’s a symbol of the past

And a message for the future

Cherish every moment.
