       The Imaginary Letter

A phantom postman passed my way
       while I was thinking of you today.
He handed me something that wasnít quite there.
       An imaginary letter, which is really quite rare.

I took it from his empty hands,
       while standing upon now shifting sands,
and fumbling fingers soon revealed
       this imaginary letter wasnít even sealed.

I opened nothing very wide
       and discovered even less inside.
The penmanship was very keen,
       so small and faint, it couldnít be seen.

The scent was sweet as I recall.
       So sweet in fact, there was none at all.
Far into the dark and gloomy night,
       I read the words you didnít write.

But at the end I found your name,
       and like an eternal flame,
love lingers yet,
       from the letter I didnít get
