The Picture That Once Hung There

all that remains
on an old wall
is a discolored square
of a picture
that once hung there

a painting or large
portrait perhaps
of the builder
long dead
who poses with
family proud and fair
in a picture
that once hung there

the years have come
and gone
the light of the
passing days
reveals the square
of the picture
that once hung there

will my journey
leave an impression
inner light to
burn upon
this mortal wall where
like a picture
my life once hung there
