Letter From Home

A warm and gentle passage
In a letter sent from home
Will warm your heart forever
Regardless where you roam

A simple little loving thought
Directed to your heart
Can keep the inner peace alive
When all else falls apart

And the timing of the letter
Sometimes makes you wonder how
Your loved ones knew you needed them
To turn your life around

Just a simple little passage
Scrolled on paper from the drawer
Is a lifeline to your principles
And all that's gone before

Itís the calling of the spirit
Drifting far across the sea
Itís the love within a motherís heart
That never sets you free

It knows when you are troubled
And your future path unknown
And it writes a gentle passage
In a letter sent from home

Elizabeth, my gentle friend~

And you have perhaps known that I've
kept EVERY letter and card I've EVER
received since the age of eight !
Talk about sentimental ...
what delight they give me ... still.
An adorably nostalgic poem.
Nothing better than a postal smile.

Direction,

Is surely God given... and He's given so much to you. I truly love writing you notes and letters and such, and it doesn't matter what you say... you see I love you... and God so told me to... but what's even better, I very much like you..!

God Bless...

Much Love, Dale

this was so gentle and uplifting. Letter writing is a lost art, much like poetry and they can be kept, guarded I love this!!

so true and so touching.  truth seems to be no matter what there is no place like home, and a letter from our loved ones always helps to pick us up in times of despair.  lovely poem keep up the wonderful work.

Very true, Liz. The same could be said about a poem that seems to appear just in time to touch someone....as yours always do.

Liz

This is such a fine, fine poem - the message seems so simple when you write - it makes me want to send you a letter - and even send one to lil Lorelei (yes, I know we live together).  I feel so fortunate to have met you, and to have been given the opportunity to read a little of your amazing, wonderful life.
