Reminders of an enduring connection

unnamed4

Hundreds of letters

Were eagerly written

By a boy and a girl

Who were thoroughly smitten

~*~

Glitter filled envelopes

Often contained

A thousand sparkly hearts

Meant to entertain

~*~

A million thoughts were sealed

With enthusiastic kisses

Every hope and dream confessed

Exposed secretly shared wishes

~*~

Blossoming love adorned

The many tear-filled pages

As hearts began to overindulge

During various stages

~*~

Passion often waged war

On their tender hearts and minds

This sort of love mimicked

That of the permanent kind

~*~

After a while they could no longer deny

An everlasting union

As they both knew this wasn’t

Just some made-up illusion

~*~

Glittering hearts

Soon entwined

With a traditional toast

Of sparkling wine

~*~

And those captured words

Of affection

Still remain as reminders

Of their enduring connection

  5. I remember writing long letters to my friends and slipping them in their lockers as a kid because I thought that was how you showed affection. I was so confused when they didn’t write me a letter back…
