Postcard Letters (Poem)


Yesterday I wrote to you,

sending a postcard of my past

to my future self,

showcasing all of the changes,

from then to now,

showing you that you're loved and not alone.


Yesterday I found an old shoe box

it was covered by dust in the attic,

begging me to uncover it.

The lid fell off as if by magic,

hoping I would find it,

hoping the nostalgia would roll me in,

and there I found the postcards,

the ones from a past life,

each one starting with, "Yesterday".
