Letter - Poem by cyclopseven Ram

A piece of paper
Given values by letters and numbers
Stressing more on emotion and relations
Letter, for centuries have kept people
Together, at one point of time
And, apart at another point of time.

A letter
My dear friends
May make you laugh in joy
Though it may not laugh at all;
A letter
My dear friends
May make you cry in sorrow
Though it may not cry at all.

A letter is just a piece of paper
That carries the eternal joy
Of human laughter from
Here, there and everywhere.

A letter is just a piece of paper
That breaks the heart of joy
And sprinkle the pieces unto tears
Here, there and everywhere.

A letter
May start a war
Where battlefields spring
To see many deaths,
Just because the letter
Carries potent words
That stitch hatred and revenge.

A letter
May end a war
Where battlefields cease
Before many dies
Just because the letter
Carries potent words
That stitch love and forgiveness.

Long, yes, it has been very long
Since I received a letter from a friend
Yet my longing to see you, my dear ‘letter’
Keep on increasing day by day.
Though, the piece of paper I don’t receive anymore
Letters still do come to me, but electronically
And I still cherish them equally.

A letter can be official
A letter can be unofficial
The impact may remain the same
Either sadness that strays the emotion
or happiness that cement the bonds.
