Finding You

I wrote you a letter yesterday,
Rolled it up like a scroll.
Using ribbons of paper mache',
I tied it with my soul.

I sprayed it with "Eternity".
Slipped "Our" picture inside.
With every dream of you and me,
And all my hope that's died.

Then tied it to another string,
A helium balloon.
Waited to hear the night birds sing,
Then went to face the moon.

The stars were bright and shining
And I knew one held my wish -
As my letter held my heart's pining,
So I sealed it with a kiss.

With a sigh, I looked up to the sky,
Touched the letter with a tear.
Let the balloon fly, wiping my eye,
I watched it "disappear".

Knowing long as Heaven holds a star,
So my love for you holds true.
Wishing no matter where you are,
My words are finding you.

------------------
Michael Anderson

May Darkness find you all through the day.

Hey, Michael, you got a better chance with that balloon than with the US Postal Service!

Excellent poem.

Very well written, great way to paint your emotional picture. I can feel it all the way over here... And I think I might have seen that baloon one night...

ah, to be in her shoes and to be loved like this!

It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
