Just One Letter

Footsteps on the corridor outside my cell.
Thank goodness it's time for the mail.

Been waiting all day long for a letter.
I've seen many days that were better.

March madness has me stressed to no end.
Now if only I can receive a letter from a friend.

Letters calm me like nothing else can.
Even in the sun I couldn't relax and tan.

Maybe a friend from Poetry Soup will hear my prayer.
Do you think there is anybody on there that will care?

Don't cause me more stress my friends.
Write me a letter and we will make all amends.

For Carolyn Devonshire's "March Madness" contest

    It's very stressful to be unsure if anyone cares about you, Jimmy. In my own way, I've experienced similar stress. Be assured, you have many people who do care. This poem is very touching. Congratulations on your win! Love, Carolyn
