So hear me write a letter to you
The struggle of spoken words, broken words
Replaced by the symphony of pen on paper
Words are Niagara, Victoria, Mt. Kilimanjaro
This letter its mist, rush and Snow

Words etched in twilight coffee
Words burnt in mid-noon sun
Words strummed along with Baez
Words hummed with angry Dylan.

Words winked at your friend’s dimples
Words hung up on late night calls
Words walking down zebra crossings
Oscillating between your rise and fall

Words that adorn your bare back
Ones that caress your black-brown hair
Words to sooth, hurt, kill and conceal
Words drowned out in Vanity Fair.

Words waved from airport lounges
Words smeared on train windows
Unspoken sorrys and never made calls
Words you’d hide saying “ HE KNOWS”

Words lost in midnight madness
Words wedged between lovers’ rift,
Sheets of blue ink inside your soul
A letter, a song, a parting gift.
Hear me write this letter to you.
