Search for meaning

By: Carl Papa Palmer

not a text, instant message,
face book post
or forwarded email

an actual letter
in a stamped envelope
addressed to me
delivered by my mailman
opened immediately

your letter with a poem,
a poem for me,
written by you
signed by you

holding your poem
reading your words
touching your words
your words touching me

I got your letter today
to keep on my table
with their letters
letters from well wishers
to be read and read again
helping me to heal
