A letter from the Soul

I celebrate this year with you
I toast the love we share
And thank God for this blessing
in each and every prayer

It started out with thoughts of you
of feelings so compelling
To search far and wide for you
to express what I’ve been withholding

Now my love, I share with you
a letter from the soul
My deeper feelings for you
than I would even know

At times I see it in your eyes
the need for you to know
The feelings that I have for you
but I’m too afraid to show

One thing that really captures me
my heart, my mind, my soul
Is your unconditional love for me
no matter what the toll

The seasons’ come full circle
from the time we met
You always treated me with love
endearing patience and understanding

I wanted you to know
I love you dear with all my heart
In a letter written to you
A letter from the soul

Preface : With the advent of email and cellphone, we as a generation have lost the art of letter writing. We have even forgotten that there was a time when writing letters was our only means of communicating over long distances. I have to admit that I long to receive a long, heart-rending, soppy letter, filled with words carefully chosen and eternal. “A letter from the soul” is a poem which originated from this thought.
