A Letter..


I wrote you a letter
Stating everything
I told you what the world had done
While you battle under the scorching sun
I write gradually an slowly
With every word I wrote
I continually outspoken
So those that were round
Could hear my thoughts out loud
I know I might
Never expect another letter
So I write with
Pride, peace, and pleasure
Sending several other letters
I knew your time was through
When a letter arrived
The day struck noon
What a glorious way
To the end the day
You arrived through the door
Carrying a sack and more.
