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



To see my books click on the pictures to take you to them

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

Absolutely lovely! I adore such love and dedication! An impression lain on time and hearts forever. It could never be said that love was not felt here. Such truth and soaring emotion. How beautiful and delicate is your coin, both sides embosed with passion and dreams.
