Vail Daily letter: Thinking of you
Vail, CO Colorado
Last March, my apartment was broken into and several items of “value” were taken. Everything was replaced by my insurance, to a certain degree, except for a letter which had no monetary value. This is about that letter:
I cherished everything about the letter that you sent.
Seeing your delicate cursive conjured memories of your thoughtful daily notes.
Touching the letter I could feel your hand holding it taut while you wrote.
I could see you at the dining room table carefully choosing each loving phrase.
I sensed your tears welling, knowing these were to be some of your final days
The letter was kept creased exactly how it was sent,
Stored safely in a fireproof box to help me get through times of deep lament.
I treasured this letter beyond belief.
Imagine how my heart sank to find that the box had been absconded by a thief.
My soul wept and mourned for your loss yet again.
How I yearned for my fingertips to trace those indelible impressions left by your pen.
I wish I could meet this thief and let him know how wealthy he has become,
For he holds a piece of paper that can give life back to a loved one.
Thinking of you this holiday season.
