4 April






it is not the words that you once wrote

or even the letters that you formed with your fine fingers

it is the whisper of your essence on the yellowed paper

the lingering breath of your thoughts

the fading pen marks where your once strong hand forged lines

into a language I would carry in my heart

long after your sweet lips stopped

long after your hands were still

long after your last breath

  9. Yes, it is much more than words on a page, it is the person behind the words which make letters so important to us.

  12. So very true. And something email can never match.

  13. And so, the enduring value of a hand written letter as opposed to electronic. it bears something of the writer themselves.

  14. … and that's a wrap. Absolutely the essence of why we adore the ink stained page!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
