Safe and Sound

by Stefanie Bourneman

Your delicate penmanship is scripted so nicely today,
Printed on that same piece of light pink paper,
Each “I” dotted with your signature heart.

I have read your letter numerous times,
Each time my heart beats faster, and faster,
Thinking of you, darling.

Thinking of you gives me hope
That maybe someday I will be released.
Free to find you, and rescue you.

You have already rescued me,
With your beautiful words of affection.
Love, do not give up now.

Oh, how my nights are so bitter,
But I am safe having you here tonight.
Now, I will sleep safe and sound.
