      The Strangers in the Box

      by Pam Harazim

      Come, look with me inside this drawer
      In this box I've often seen
      At the pictures, black and white
      Faces proud, still and serene

      I wish I knew the people
      These strangers in the box
      Their names and all their memories
      Are lost among the socks.

      I wonder what their lives were like,
      How did they spend their days?
      What about their special times?
      I'll never know their ways.

      If only someone would have taken time,
      To tell who, what, and when,
      Those faces of my heritage
      Would come to life again.

      Could this become the fate
      Of the pictures we take today?
      The faces and the memories
      Someday to be tossed away.

      Make time to save your pictures
      Seize the opportunity when it knocks
      Or someday you and yours could be
      The strangers in the box.
