With tired eyes
I scanned
Every book and letter
Trying to find what would fulfill
My eternal happiness
Nothing there with your name
Scripted on the page
I started to feel my efforts were in vain
Though I couldn't stop
Before finished
Forcing my sight on the last shelf and row
Where at last I found it
The book you wrote for me
The letter slipped inside it
Yellow, ripped, wearing thin
I picked it up so carefuly,
Afraid it might break,
So frail,
And held it in my hands for hours
Knowing it was mine once more.

Beautifully written ... not often I can read and feel sad and happy all in the same breath
