Only a few words, in haiku (but not 5-7-5).

Talk of poems and prayers and promises and things that we believe in;
How sweet it is to love someone, how right it is to care;
How long it’s been since yesterday and what about tomorrow?
What about our dreams and all the memories we share?

The backstory for this (hopefully) enigmatic haiku is a tale of a search through my photo library.
