I wrote you a letter

Telling you all the things I know to be true

Like you are beautiful, strong, unique

Stubborn, selfish, intolerable

But I love you

You are the ying to my yang

The missing piece to my puzzle

I know we are old history

And I know

He hurt you

But when that dress he gave you

Starts to fade and tear at the seams

My words will still be there

When all those texts are no longer

On your phones history

When those phone calls are no more

Than a distant memory

My words will be there

When your hope finally dies

When he boards that plane

And his decision is made final

My words will still be there

No matter how hard you try

Scribble over them, white them out,

Tear the letter up

My words will still be there

Put the letter up to the light

And you will see my words

Under the scribble and beneath the white out

Piece the torn letter together

And what you will find

Is my words

Try to buy a pen eraser

But all it does is merely fade

My words are still legible

Still there

Burn it, but the carbon dating

Will only tell you

That my words were there

My words are still there
