It's like finding lost pieces of a jig saw puzzle
Looking at my family history in photographs,
Tin types, glass negatives, and old letters ...
Another of life's "nuggets", turning into a "pearl"
Through my curiosity and, right before my eyes
Only in my imagination and what I surmise
Is all the legacy I now will leave behind
Too bad my elders are all gone
I'd love to hear the stories I could find
If only they could speak their mind
