There was stack of letters in the box, almost missed.
Tied with plain brown string,
these letters held words of love
words of passion and hope for the future~
Homesick words beautifully written from a loved one
far away in miles, close in comfort.
At the bottom of this precious pile
was a terse tear-stained military note
to the loved one’s mother
Saved by the girl he left behind:
“We regret to inform you….”
Love lost but remembered forever.
