Without saying anything, you knew what I meant with what I gave you.
I wanted you to keep it, tucked away somewhere safe–a precious keepsake to savor in secret, only you would know where to find it.
I wanted you to have a piece of me telling you how I feel–that I am grateful for you, that I care for you, that I do love you though you may have doubts because I have never shown you my feelings before–a time when I was so confused trying to be a good girl–to make the grade of norm, but now I know.
And I am defying everything I’ve known until now just for a chance to tell you what’s been sleeping in my heart for years.
And if we never see each other again, I just want you to know–I gave you my love in a handwritten letter. ❤
