Letters In A Satin Box

within the old box
his letters from long ago
tied with blue ribbons

each night brings sorrow
her sheet remains empty cold
his touch a lost dream

weeping through the night
arms reaching out his body
forever alone

Heartache for who is lost. We all have been there, some time or the other I think. Well said, Melanie..
