From 2015. Tweaked minimally just now.

June 14th

I lie in bed
reading Jane Kenyon
because she is
your favourite poet.

I worry about botching
our deepening friendship,

still in its early stages.

But then I recall
your words
in the handpainted card
you recently sent, and

hope comes back to me.

Nice. Simple and complete, no filler.

I want to go "aww, that's so sweet" kind of reaction. It truly warmed my heart - merci.
