What Happened To Love Letters? – Poetry

16 Jun

It wasn’t all that long ago
When someone fell in love
They poured all their emotions
Into the written word

They’d send it in the mail
Taken to lovers near and far
To notify their loved ones
Of exactly who they are

Each time a correspondence
Went traveling on it’s way
The momentous amount of words
Took longer then a day

Each letter written carefully
Because you only had one chance
To impress the one you loved
Each sentance a loving dance

Now with the age of technology
Love has become a bore
Just a hi, hello, I noticed you
Romance goes out the door

What ever happened to
“I noticed you from afar”
“I spent ages watching you”
“Not knowing who you are”

“I don’t know how I love you”
“But maybe you noticed me too”
“One time our eyes locked and lingered”
“A love like ours so true”

Now we spend our time wondering
Where love has gone wrong
Well maybe if you noticed
Loves been here all along

Maybe back then it was different
When you met “her” she was the one
In time when loves a freeway
Your love just comes undone

Maybe if we linger
Take a moment, take it in
We can find the love we lost
And try love once again.
