A Misplaced Letter
This poem is about a letter,
one that was posted through a door,
and somehow it got pushed,
under the carpet on the floor.
Many years past before it came to light.
Then when it was opened,
there was a surprise in sight.
It revealed a secret, that had been hidden
for years, and the person that opened it,
just burst into tears.
It read of a young women,
who begged to come home,
she was without friends and all alone.
The man she ran away with
had gone back to his wife, she was now with child
having ruined her life.
The letter was dated, ninteen thirty five.
Could it be possible that she is still alive.
If her child had lived, there would be children of it's own
With one set of grandparents, the other's unknown.
