I Wondered Around

by Steve J. Burkett (author's profile)

Transcription

I wandered around
for years
with his letter
his last letter
nothing more than a note
a note I've read
and reread
countless times
until I knew
every word by heart
I carried it
in my pocket
inside my coat
for years
unfolding and refolding it
until it begun
to fall apart
It is now hidden
inside a plastic bag
inside an envelope
in a box
under my bunk
I can read it
word for word
inside my mind
I love you, Daddy
