There is something . . .
something enchanting about the handwritten letter;
the licked stamp;
the kissed envelope;
it’s a little piece of me . . . coming to visit you.
No matter where you are in the world,
and how far apart I may be,
I can be there.
I can box up a little sunshine, a little love, a smile
and come to your doorstep.
So, the next time you’re lonely,
send me a thought.
I’ll write a letter,
lick a stamp,
kiss an envelope,
I’ll send a little piece of me to come visit you.
