His Eyes


His photocopied photo is overlooking me as I sit on the couch, reading. He has been gone nearly 69 years, but I feel his eyes on me.

“You never got old,” I whisper at the photo. “You never had a chance.”

I wonder what he would have been like older. Would he have been like his older brother, my grandfather?

And while I look at him, young, healthy, strong, I wonder, what will we be like when we are old? What will I be like?

Will I be?

    Ő is, egy fényképen, és a fejekben, emlékekben, elbeszélésekben, írásokban, gondolatokban.
    Te is, mert túl nagy súllyal vagy része a világnak.
    Élsz majd tovább, a gyerekeidben.
    Jó lenne végre tényleg elkezdened/befejezned azt a könyvet.
    És akkor abban is! 🙂

    Ever since you wrote about him the first time, I’m intrigued, but I can’t remember seeing a picture of him. Would you consider posting it online or is that too private?
