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.
