The letter


THE LETTER


Receiving that letter, it brightens the day
Incarcerated with prisoners
Can really bring one down
Dealing with issues while serving time
Stress and boredom it weekends the soul
Wake in the morning in hopes for those lines
When they call my name it all goes away
Letter in hand filled with joy
Can’t wait to read it and see who cares
The power of the letter can change so much
To make the day bright
Or to bring it down
Having loved ones that write
Goes straight to the heart
Having opportunity to return the lines
It’s something to cherish
The gift of reading and writing
The communication with others
It’s a gift indeed
To respond and write my thoughts
To answer their questions
It’s my loved ones who I adore
It’s their letter that I can’t wait to read

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
