Picture Perfect Memories

I lament:

As the clock ticks
My playlist ringing on repeat
It's been a long time since you're home,
next to me.
Dusty frames rendering our smiles

Sadly the sun will eventually set,
We'll never be the same for good
The gap in my heart aches
As the memories wash in
If only the pictures could speak a thousand words

How could one miss only the memory?
When even the fairy tale in the picture is thousand miles away,
perhaps forever has ceased.

Could somebody slow down the clock?
Yesterday has never felt that far away.
