Letter Poem


She sat for a moment looking up the envelope she felt it was on its way, she knew how he felt and here it was she hesitated just see what it would say.

She realized how much he had touched her life, how he had helped her to follow a better path, and now she knew it would all change, maybe she’d read it after a long bath.

The letter she saw looked like it was stained, the tears had fallen as he had penned, she knew that she had been distracted but now she needed to read it to the end.

He had told her one day this might come and yet she never wanted to see them apart, but she hadn’t listened to the words he had said nor had she listened to her heart.

So many laughs and yet so many tears and in the end it was not easy to see, maybe it was the drinking or just the distance they shared, but this wasn’t the end she wished it to be.

She read each word and yet her mind couldn’t really see it yet, yes he had said it all before but this time she could tell the line had been set.

All that they had shared of dreams and hopes and even love, it came off and was being tossed aside like an old worn glove.

Was he too wise for his own good with his seeing her from the start, only time would tell where the paths would lead covering this pain in her heart.
