Ephemera

Love Letters by Ghost_DiRanders at deviantART

my heart is nothing more
than a stack of old love letters
emotions folded and creased
paper yellowed with the passing years
your signature still scrawled across in indelible ink

This was so sweet, yours to keep forever.

I have a box of those old love letters...at the age of 70 I'm wondering if I should just 'let the kids' find them one day ~ or say farewell to them now!
