Poetry Challenge by SJ Warner



The messages lay
Upon my desk
Words from a love
So far away
Words sent from a
Place so dark
Yet filled with love
And light.
The hope and affection
Bring me to tears
Words across the oceans
Sent from afar.
Each one so personal
So passionate
Hiding the horrors
Giving hope.
A note from man
To his sweetheart
Spread out before me
So much history.
The love that’s poured
Into every word on the
Delicate, browned parchment
Fills my heart.
As he tells
Of his hope for their future
And how he is
Eternally hers.
Words kept with a
Wedding dress
Packed away safe
Hidden from daylight.
Not known about
Until it was too late
To ask questions
Lovers reunited in heaven for

    • Dear Deb,
      Thank you so much, although some of the praise should go to my mum who at the drop of a hat found the postcards out and sent pictures of them to me. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful challenge and for including me. I really enjoyed writing this piece so much.
