Deep within the
pages of an old book
a folded letter
faded and worn

Opened with care
reveals your words
The promise of
love eternal,
never kept

Tiny pieces
of ripped paper
flow from my hand
like snowflakes

On a frozen day
a long time from
you..and those words

Raph, this is really good. And being the "hopeless romantic"
that I am, I'm going to put it in my library, too. Thanks
for sharing, friend.

Hello Raphael

This was simply exquisite and so much enjoyed.

Take care......Sue

Sentimental, angsty w/o being whiny.  Short but sweet, and enough to be moving.

Perfectly written with that sting at the end that I always enjoy about your writing.  This one is very accesible and I'm sure many will deem this a keeper in relate. In fact, I do
