LOVE LETTERS OF YESTERDAY

I found a letter today…

In the attic of an old abandoned house.

In a shoebox covered in the years of dusty neglect.

The letter was unopened,

And addressed to My Mary Lee.

And as I paused there in the moment,

Dare I open it and see….

 

I turned letter round and round,

And over in my hand.

Water stains of years gone by,

Maybe from a shaking hand.

Perhaps the tears of Mary Lee,

Whose courage left that day,

In this unopened letter that never found its way.

 

Untold memories of love…

Untold memories of loss…

We live our lives and give our hearts

And in the end, we pay the cost.

Maybe if we’re lucky,

We will find the words to say…

Written in our love letters of yesterday.

 

 

In a moment of indecision,

I searched my mind for what to do.

Should I open this old letter?

Do I dare? Do I intrude?

Something deep inside of me,

Said put this thing away.

Who am I to just assume,

To think that it’s okay?

 

Untold memories of love…

Untold memories of loss…

We live our lives and give our hearts

And in the end, we pay the cost.

Maybe if we’re lucky,

We will find the words to say…

Written in our love letters of yesterday.

 

I finally re-opened the box,

And I put the letter back.

Through the years of its wonderment,

The letter was intact.

And though this little mystery,

Is with me still today.

I never will regret the choice,

To let the letter, stay…

 

Untold memories of love…

Untold memories of loss…

We live our lives and give our hearts

And in the end, we pay the cost.

Maybe if we’re lucky,

We will find the words to say…

Written in our love letters of yesterday.

Untold memories of love…

Untold memories of loss…

We live our lives and give our hearts

And in the end, we pay the cost.

Maybe if we’re lucky,

We will find the words to say…

Written in our love letters of yesterday.
