Take a picture

Take a picture.
I know it's not the same,
but it'll help you recall this moment
when you felt completely free from pain.
Savour this feeling.
Make an imprint on your brain.
Your planets are realigning 
so your spirit can fly again.

Take a picture.
I know photos aren't alive,
but it'll help you remember the moment
when you realised you will survive.
It's taken it's time coming,
this rekindled joy for life.
Though the sensation may be fleeting,
it's a glimpse of what could be in sight.

Take a picture.
I know it can't capture peace,
but it'll help you recall the feeling 
of a rolling wave of release.
Be a part of what is around you.
Relax your muscles and be at ease.
Let the atmosphere help to heal you.
Feel your confidence increase.

Take a picture.
I know it cannot erase your grief,
but these photos can remind you
of experiencing merciful relief.
Embrace this welcome departure
even if respite is quite brief.
Life can still be beautiful. 
Don't give up this core belief.

Take a picture.
I know it cannot freeze frame time,
but a picture can transport you
when you need a calmer mind.
If you start to feel the struggle
recall the freedom one can find
from a moment that brought you happiness
just pause, reminisce, unwind.
