Haveyou ever wanted to write a letter
to someone you need?
To tell them how you feel for them,
so words of love they’ll read.
To tell them that you cannot hide
what they make you feel inside.
To let them know you think of them
all through the day.
You hope that they’ll write back to you
feeling the same way.
Have you ever written a letter to break up with someone?
To let them know you don’t love them now;
you think it’s time you’re done.
To tell them you still care for them,
but you want to be just friends.
To tell them you’re sorry,
but there will never be an “again“.
To get things off your chest,
and tell them what they lack.
You write a three page letter that says,
“please do not write back“.
Have you ever wanted to write a letter just to reminisce?
To think of all the good times,
and remember what you miss.
To tell them you hold their memories so dear.
To tell them you haven’t forgotten
and you wish that they were near.
To bring up all the things you did together,
and to ask them to write you back,
Have you ever written a letter to share
your last regret?
To say, “sorry” for acting foolish,
because you haven’t apologized yet.
To tell them how you feel so bad,
about how you let them down.
To tell them you know it’s because of you
they aren’t around.
To tell them you understand
why they feel the way they do,
knowing that they’ll
never write a letter back to you.
Have you ever written a letter
never to be mailed?
Only to make yourself feel better
knowing that you’ve failed.
Well if you write those letters,
and never send them away…
how do you expect the one you love
to read what you have to say?
