Signed with a Heart

Love letters
Seem to be a thing of the past
Do we dare write in long hand?
We have lost something very near
And dear to my heart
For there was nothing I loved 
Better than to write the words
I love you.
Signed with a heart.
And to smell the perfume 
And cigarettes
And touch the tearstains
Of a hand written letter
With not an inkling of disdain
Lipstick on the outside
In the shape of a kiss
Never to be forgotten
Such simple easy bliss
Another gracious act of giving
Lost to the winds
I hope that somewhere out there 
There’s a flurry of airmail yet to be delivered
That says we are all in love.
For I know that one more letter
Would mean more than the heavens up above.

    My Dearest Karen, It is so wonderful to hear from you again. I am so thrilled that you enjoyed my poem. Your sweet words have warmed my heart on a cold night upon the sea. When I return we can share a song and reflect upon what shall be. With all my heart, Kilmer ;)

    ITALY and HOLLAND- they stood for I Trust And Love You .... Hope Our Love Lives And Never Dies. In those days when people really loved deeply. Now they tweet love, with a small t.

    That's beautiful! At last someone has written about it! I love handwritten letters and I make an effort to write to my grandmother and my closest friends around the states. It feels so great to get a letter in the mail. Anyhow, I love your subject and your poignant poem. I can't wait to read more from you. I'm going to see some of your earlier posts now. You write like a beast!! --and it's all really good too! Always, Laura

    I love getting mail. It's so personal that someone took the time to sit down and actually write something worth reading. I write to get out the demons. I know no other way. Peace, love, and understanding... Kilmer
