He sent through a poem 

Better than I could ever write 

About smiles and kisses 

Butterflies and wings

Peace and dreams 

Flying me to lands of love

The words I hungered to hear

The words I ached to feel

And then I saw

The lines were old 

They were written not

For me, they were presented

  1. Heartbreaking piece Vonita. So hopeful, but then she sees the words are for some one else — they are old. Or perhaps, its something he wrote her in the past and does not mean anymore.
