writing letters still exists
Letter of love
After many years I picked up my pen to write
A letter to a long lost friend.
We grew up together she and I , together we
Laughed , we joked and at times we cried.
Then her and her family moved away
I searched for her night and day.
Like most teens in school we knew each other
By first name , as I searched – it seemed in vain.
When one of her friends I happened to see
And her address and name was given to me.
With tears in my eyes I started to write and my
Heart was filled with delight.
My feelings poured out on to the paper !
“ I fell in love with you from the start- you captured
My soul and my heart.
A happiness I never felt before until you walked into that door..
I don’t know if you feel the same way too , but my heart
Belongs to only you “
Two days later I received a reply
“ I’m sorry I never got to say good-bye “
My feelings for you are the same and maybe I’ll
Get to carry your name.
We’ll meet in college and start again for I love you
Much more than a friend .
The college years went by fast and we knew our love would last
Careers we both have now , and we took our wedding vows
Our love letters we put away for our children to read some day.
