Love Letter In Hand

Love Letter In Hand

As he lay there
With a letter in his hand
He carried it everywhere
This letter written to this man

He was sent off to war, after
He married the love of his life
They was making lots of plans
He wanted mostly her to be his wife

While he was off to war
She had got cancer and passed
Though she didn't say in her letters
She knew she was going fast

Now he lays there
Dead from a broken heart
Never wanting another lady
wasn't interested in a new start

When they found him
The letter was quinched in his fist
They had to pry it out
Though he was dead his eyes was full of mist

No one really knew him
Thought he was lost old man
But to little kids he would tell
His stories as if they was written in sand

Today it's so hard to find
A true love so it seems
Couples are mostly fighting
Pulling at each others strings

If we could learn to love each other
Instead of money and material things
If we could learn to let go
We'd soon feel what true love brings

If you should find that true love
Your life will be another sight
Because you will see things differently
And I can guarantee, your heart will feel light

No one seems to write letter
Like they did back in the day
We need to write more letters
And get more love in our hearts each day

TO SOME WE SEEM LIKE A GENIOUS
TO SOME WE SEEM LIKE A FOOL
BUT OUR WORDS OF POETRY
IS JUST OUR EXPESSION TOOL
