Just short notes

But they mean so much

Get tucked away in the closet

In the mind

In the heart

In the soul

Taken out years later

Yellow, torn, and smudged

Still hold the same glow

Read it out loud

To everyone who listens

Some interested

Others bored

But all listen

Advice in the letter

Used through a lifetime

Gain respect

From this

Pieces of paper with ink

Is that all it is

Oh no

Not at all

It is a memento

A door that opens up to

So many memories
