Photo OP

Pin Lim 1982 (Montreal)

Photo OP

Looking back at old memories of us seem like ages ago
Seeing old photograph with friends with nothing to show
Of that person that Im having a hard time trying to replace
The pain of goodbyes seems like the only thing I can't erase

Can't seem to remember how things are now disconnected
For a moment in time everything seem almost picture perfect
The excitement I felt by the thought of calling your name
Now shattered glass falling down to my broken frame

Trying to piece back the shards and put it back on the shelf
To remember the good parts to help me remind myself that...
I can make new memories but I'll be a new album instead
To cast a new lead to look onto the long road ahead

Even though all physical form are deleted or thrown away
I'll still cherish every passage of emotions till this day
Perhaps the thoughts of you will still hurt me every now and then
But the love for you shall always remain.
