Texting, Tweeting, Instagrams,
Email, Voicemail, no more "Candy-Grams"?
Trivial info and messages galore
With spelling and grammar shipwrecked off-shore.
With "BFF" and "LOL",
Conversations have gone to...well,
Something below personal and caring.
Instead, our communiques have become just BLARING!
Are gone the days when we took a stand
To sit at desk with pen in hand,
To create works of love and care?
And attempt a heartfelt message there?
A letter that mutates from heart to hand,
To pen and paper...and sent over land?
Making a tortured journey across the nation
Finally arriving at your love's destination.
Then, when it arrives, imagine their surprise
Their heart leaps with "who's" and "why's",
As they look to see from whom it comes.
And then they see it's from your home.
And as they read the words you've scripted
With your own hand, not encrypted
On some slick electronic device
Or copied and pasted with the aid of a "mouse" (or "mice").
It's a tiny love tome that you created
To let them know that love generated
Deserves with deeply personal love and endeavor,
To say, "Yes, we are, best friends forever."
