The Letter

The Letter

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

I laid out the coin we minted within my hearts own treasury To toss about the thoughts we had of our own benedictory

"

My rendition of my loving wife
Rebecca and my first grandchild Payton, on her first day of life. 

This my letter to you my dear

who have never written to me

I set before you my great hopes

of the dreams that may come to be

 

I laid out the coin we minted

within my heart's own treasury

To toss about the thoughts we had

of our own benedictory

 

You stamped this coin upon my soul

embossed with love of hope divine

Pressed in the mint of memory

you will age like the finest wine

 

Should you choose to ever leave me

may we find our lost love and stay

Like dreams we both had forgotten

from the hopes of our yesterday

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
I dreamed a dream that became Rebecca my wife. Herein lies the truth of a tangible life. Oh on our deathbeds will we look back and find the thing we cherished valued and loved was something we barely touched yet dreamed might touch us;that of the love of another unconditionally reaffirming our right to exist and reason to live.

ahh your subtle and clever "turn o the tongue" rings with the sweet music of the Irish laddie! You have that simple frank statement of the truths of life well honed, and it is a pleasure to read you Master Morgan.

The rhyming of this piece is what I like, and the structure of it

This is so good. I hardly have words to express how touching this is. Great poem!

Beautiful! Your idea of using the word "coin" in there is amazing.
"Pressed in the mint of memory
you will age like the finest wine"
I love this phrase.
"Should you choose to ever leave me
may we find our lost love and stay
Like dreams we both had forgotten
from the hopes of our yesterday".
Very very well written.
