Carry On Tuesday #36

Written for and posted to carry on tuesday
also posted to MondayPoetryTrainRevisited.

The prompt this week is from Robert Browning's
Grow Old Along With Me
Grow old along with me
the best is yet to be.


I used the line the best is yet to be, which I inserted into
the rewriting/updating of a piece I wrote a few years back.
The original poem is a stand alone piece and todays offering
is to be treated as something new, which it is, because I have
something new and fresh to say on the matter. Phew!

                                                                            
GOT YOUR LETTER
(STILL)
I got your letter yesterday
How I wish you could come to stay
Even though you're so far away
You wrote a note to say that you
Miss me need me want me love me

You are my sun you are my moon
You are my lyric and my tune
You are my midnight and my noon
So please please come back some day soon

Miss you need you want you love you
Don't you know that I love you too?

Although that was five years ago
Nothing's changed I still love you so
The best is yet to be you know
Oh yeah, have you still got my ring?
I want you more than anything

You are my sun you are my moon
You are my lyric and my tune
You are my midnight and my noon
So please please come back someday soon

Miss you need you want you love you
Don't you know that I love you three? 
Repeat
