Golden silk with deep red tie

Folded in golden silk
with deep red tie of the same 
tucked inside a bedside drawer
this is for what she came

hands shook as she lifted her precious package
opening slowly upon flowered bedspread
the letters tidy against colors on which they lay
still in envelopes unopened unread

it has been a year since he passed away
the father she had never forgiven
all her life she never knew
he had been locked up in prison

mother told her before she passed away 
just a month ago with blame
handing her precious golden silk
with deep red tie of the same

as she opened the letters one by one
sobs escaping as she read
all the wishes she always dreamed of
lay right here upon flowered bed

all these years wasted hating him
not knowing all along that he cared
momma said he left and never came back
for this she was unprepared

holding to her heart these now opened letters 
with tear stains she has no shame
the i love yous wrapped in golden silk
with deep red tie of the same

    Where do you get your phrasing - not too simple - not too hard - just perfect - you can really write poetry - I'm more simple minded and cannot write like this - I find your poems so captivating!
