How thrilled I would be
To receive a handwritten letter
From a friend,
I know you’d have to
Pay for postage,
Find an envelope,
And ask for my address
Because I doubt you know it.
But, what a memorable day that would be,
As I rummage through the riff raff
Of bank and company statements,
To find a handwritten letter,
A long lost treasure in my mail.
I could see how your pen may have quivered
To finish an idea,
Or crossed out a word you felt unneeded,
Your edited association of thought,
With no digitally encrypted feeling,
Just the draw of the raw pen.
How touched I’d feel to read that letter,
To see your own handwriting,
I don’t think I’ve ever seen it before.

About the Author
I grew up in a small town in Florida where I currently live. A pretty normal 90’s childhood. The youngest of three. A proud Aunt. A current college graduate figuring it all out. I’ve always enjoyed writing and songwriting. A big fan of 60’s Rock ‘n’ Roll helped guide me towards my love for poetry. I look forward to the many adventures ahead.
