An Old Letter of Youth



I found an old tattered letter,

Tucked away in a box, as I

Sorted thru the depths of my closet.

Oh! such memories it did spark

Of the first true love

I had known.

I chuckled as I read it,

Because I knew

Since then,

How each of us had grown.


It had been a time of discovery,

Silliness, daydreaming and childlike

Youthful innocence.

Once, we had swore that our love

Would last forever ever and ever.

Nothing could possibly tear us apart.

Our parents knew the difference,

But showed support from the very start.



I looked back on those days of yesteryear

Of the dreams we had, that love so pure.

Daydreaming, I allowed myself

Some “what if” moments, had

Life’s circumstances’ allowed for us

To have continued on together.

I wondered where I would be?

And who, what and how

Would I be different on this day?

A little voice inside me, whispered.

It was sure, that my life was better now,

Than any other way.



Startled, from my day dream trance

By the trill of the phone,

I answered, it was my eldest.

At that moment, in my heart and soul

I knew the answer my what if’s

Had been seeking.

The future and our path

God and the universe, help us choose

Is the one that turns out best.



Kind Regards and reminiscing – K
