The Letter
Author: Catyrose


The card came in the mail today
I couldnít believe my eyes
So many years, so many tears
For you to realize

The damage you had done
You now wish to repair
Acknowledging the sin
Committed upon oneís heart
Apology for all the years
That we have spent apart

I held the letter in trembling hands
The tears began to flow
So many years, so many tears
Iíve waited for this day

Pictures flash through my mind
Of those nights I left behind
I wish I could forgive
The injustice of it all
When you stood tall
And I was still so very small

Isn't it odd?

No matter how old you get, or how mature, something like this makes you feel inside, like the scared, hurt child you used to be, all over again. Writing really is good therapy, isn't it? Another great poem, Catyrose.
