Little Lord

serious little boy picture

"Who's that in the photo?" Jemima asked.  I looked, unsure; this was a photo of us in our lounge, just last week, my wife and I, and our two daughters Amy and Liesel.  But here in the photo was another, a boy, somewhere around six years old.  My wife grabbed the picture from my hand, "It looks like you when you were young, you know, the picture we call Little Lord?"

I did know the one and she was right - that was me in the picture, but how was this possible?  I looked at myself so much younger yet here in the picture I was.  The Little Lord looked back at me, judging my uninspiring life with eyes full of sadness, and then slowly faded away.
