This is truly lovely, but I found myself wanting to read the poem on the postcard. Maybe a re-write could include it?

I really enjoyed this! Good work.

This is great -reminds me of the poem my Grandpa wrote to Grandma for their first Valentine's together before they got married. Grandma found it a few years ago. Like I told my sister, "Never knew he had it in him!" Grandpa was an old farmer too :)
I was a little confused thinking the postcard was a picture of you at first and wondering how old you were! Duh! Lovely links between past and present (when I finally sorted it out). I too would have loved to have seen the poem. Keep writing.
Truly beautiful. Loved the ending. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice story. I would tighten up the 'was' words. Makes you think about your own past.

Very sweet, precious story - you were in search of one thing, and found an even greater treasure!
