Your Letter Jacket

Written by: Annalee Pierce

I shiver, and you rescue me
You save me from the
Cold
You can tell I'm freezing, so you 
Dress me up yourself
In the jacket with your name engraved
You wrap me up in leather
Sleeves
The ice melts from my body and I'm no
Longer winter's flower

With you, my spring is pollen-free
We skip all of April's
Showers
You take me straight into
A cloudless May
Where the cold can never  follow
Our world is ripe 
Eternally
Each day each thing grows new
You build for me a pretty paradise, and I 
Can't get enough

You feed me honey from the honeycomb 
You give me all the sweetest
Stuff
I lap it up just like it's water, so voracious 
And so greedy
We take walks through lively gardens; 
And I wear my best sundress 
I soak up your sun and hold your hand
I  still  wear  your  letter  jacket

You kiss away my goose bumps, and
You chase away my fears
And I 
Loved resting my head on your lap as
Your parents drove me home
I know
That I'm in love with you every time I 
Hear your name
You tell me with your words, and
You tell me with
Your eyes
But nothing says, "I love you" more than
Your letter jacket
