The Postage Stamp

I have traveled the world
Across the oceans and great lands
I have seen this earth from high above
A majestic orb in clouded beauty
From afar the pain of man, unseen

I have exposed myself
Like a naked Rembrandt on display
I was seen in the museum of the common man
As I journeyed far and wide
No one took any notice, of my quiet observations

All my voyages have ended
So now I sit tranquil in the corner
One day, someone will discover me
And see, the stories I have to tell
Of kings and Queens, and lovers lost

I may even tell a tale of woe
A sad story, buried in old archives
Of a love that was both great and sad
For those in love who never knew
The love letter lost, postage due

    My favorite is the second stanza. That really resonated with me! :) Lovely! My father is an avid stamp collector, but I mean...he takes it seriously. Stamps and coins are his passion and it is so sad that none of us kids have that passion...Wish I could send you some....

    This was inspired as I used to collect stamps as a child, and have since started collecting again! I consider stamps small works of art. Oh And if anyone is kind enough to wish to send me some..... Just email me!!!! :)
