Treasure Chest

Treasure Chest
Form: Free Verse

I kept our letters from long ago
in a chest under my bed
my treasure of hidden messages
in the stories of every day
and I smile when I think of the coded ways
we used to say “I love you”
our love that can never die
for you and your love changed my life
the only love I will ever want is you
so I cherish our letters
recalling the days I will remember always
as if I only saw you yesterday
in the echoes of promised love we made
forever and a day
