Meeting Love Twice Through The Mail

Before the electronic mail we have now snail mail was the only postal means write a letter, stick a stamp, envelope sealed into the postbox it goes my forever dreams My first love Jean for a year did write to each other every week looked forward to that post come it meant so much without it all's bleak But then post stopped we dated fell in love so very very much got wed for we were the match but Jean passed away by God's touch My second love Christine loved mail regularly we penned to one another really got to know each other well so wondered if we could go further Then I got chickenpox out of the blue so Christine sent me a get well card that clicked us so we started to date got wed 9 months later, our love starred So mail has a loving touch shows its hand to a live connect I can vouch truly for that twice it helped me, love select (This is written looking back on mail and it's effect on my love life as it twice had a effectual lasting proof on it.)

Mails are great, although I admit that with emails advent I've stopped except for holidays. Nice penning!

Mail was wonderful to receive, but I think it's just as exciting to get emails - imagine when we find out we get poem of the day, or we hear from a friend we haven't communicated with in years or when we win a competition or 50% sales that starts tomorrow. However I loved your poem Gordon - great write, Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Nothing beats that personal touch Gordon, you watch the postmans approach hoping he'll walk up your path. Worked with Royal Mail for forty years sadly it has declined with the advance of modern communications. Started off as a telegram boy on the old bsa bantam. Happy days. Getting hot now 30 c, the pool Awaits. Tom

Thanks Tom, Glad you liked it and pleased to hear you worked with royal mail all these years and sure you delivered many an important envelope. I nearly had a job as postman but after interview I decided against it which I've always regretted but life moves on. Keep cool! are you there in T permanently? Blessings, Gordon

Loved this Gordon. You lucked out twice with this but not so for my poor Aunt. I wrote a poem about it long ago. I will re-post it for you. God Bless, JB
