Lick the envelope,
bid you a farewell.
Melancholy smiles
mute the words I yell

Holding the letter
that carries my thoughts.
Logic in answers,
yet feeling distraught

Handing it over,
receiving my own.
Thankful for moments
with lessons now known

Taking unpaved paths,
detached and set free.
Leaving your presence,
returning to me

Reading this letter
helps me realize.
My ultimate peace,
is the valued prize

Goodbye and farewell,
hope life grants you ease.
May you find your way,
flowing with the breeze

– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy
