The Treasure Of A Letter - Poem by Bill Cantrell

Words carefully written,
Will they stand the test of time?
The secret is emotion,
Not in the way words rhyme.
Treasures found,
Lessons learned,
Put them in a chest.
No better words than I love you,
Could ever serve you best.

Topic(s) of this poem: love

    Bill Cantrell,
    I have been recently beginning to find myself reading early works of poets. It is very enjoyable. anyway.....Your poem, The treasure of a letter is very powerful. I see here you meant this for your wife; but the honest building block in our hearts for others is so important. Love is that building block. If we want love we must give it. Beautiful work..............Thanks for writing..............................Kathy
