    "Paper Kisses"

    As I opened up the envelope
    My daughter handed me,
    She said she had a letter
    That she wanted me to see.

    As I tore into the sticky flap
    Her eyes grew big and wide,
    For only she could know for sure
    What was safely tucked inside.

    I took the paper from within
    What could she have written me?
    Mostly scribbles I was sure
    For she was only three.

    Then what I saw was... nothing
    Both sides of it were blank,
    "What is this?" I asked of her
    When my heart had slowly sank.

    "I put kisses on it mommy...
    I kissed the en'lope too,
    No matter where you are each day
    I will always be with you."

    No words could ever speak so loud
    From my darling little princess,
    One simple page so full of love
    Sealed up in paper kisses.

    OMG that is so sweet. I got a lump in my throat when I read this poem. It was so beautifully innocent. What a special treat, and being a mother myself it was especially moving.

    That is so lovely Sally, I have a similar thing from my two daughters, only I have tiny handprints in water paint, reminding me of when they were very small. Beautiful poem! Keith(backstreetdreamer)

    Excellent feet substitutions, I have to go into trisyllabic ones more myself...

    This one put a smile on my face. Well done!

    I was never good with the "feet" definitive - care to explain METRICAL?
    I'm sure many of us would like the simple definition of such.

    btw - TREE's poem is just an example of how brilliant her writing is - She's offered us many definitions/examples of poetic style - I agree with your comment - this poem also put a smile on my face :)

    Hi Sally, I must echo everyone else - it is a lovely, heartfelt poem and I love the little twist in the middle - adorable. Is it just me or does one sing this to 'The twelve Days of Christmas'?

    Wishing you and your family a joyous New Year.
