Love Letter - Poem by Jay P Narain

I found a letter in the drawer in an old pile,

buried in dust and lost in time,

The ink and the words were faded,

but the thoughts and feelings were molded.

This may have been the first love letter I wrote,

which my wife kept it with her for so many years,

The promises of eternal love glowed from its engravings,

The hopes of love lasting beyond our lives were shimmering in its etching.

With so many promises ignored,

the 'I love you' greeting almost forgotten,

I asked my wife, 'Why do you keep this piece of paper,

full of false promises and momentary love innuendos'?

She smiled, blushed a little, and replied,

It may be your ad-lib promise and show of love,

but when you inscribed it on the letter with your feelings,

It became ultimate sanctuary of my love.
