YOU ARE RIGHT TO WRITE

     YOU ARE RIGHT TO WRITE

I keep all of your letters in one neat pile
They stay on my desk in favor of a file
I keep them like that to remind me of your style
And don’t allow anyone ever to defile your smile

I envision that grin I love which graces your face
As I recall the comfort of your embryonic embrace
A great deal of people say “good things never last”
But please, girl, don’t ever become a part of my  past

I am never alone because of the letters you send
And relaxation becomes mine when I read what you’ve penned
Then if missing you begins to hurt me too much
I gaze at a photo of you that blesses my hutch

Mystically looking at that pile makes me feel better
As I grow more in love with you due to every letter
The love I feel for you leaves me aghast
So please girl, never become a part of my past
