Happy New Year to you…I thought I’ll start the new year with a request,requests actually and those are to please visit my blog more and kindly leave a comment,since this website is self-hosted,wordpress won’t allow me likes,so the only way to know if you’ve liked my poem is if you leave me a comment,I hope you’ll understand and I hope to see you more this year,here and on your blog,all the best to us…

and now to the many requests we make to the people we love,mostly we’d like to know that we are remembered and thought of,don’t you think that’s most important…
I love collecting postcards(I have quite a decent collection and one day I might put up a post asking people to send me postcards from everywhere),it occurred to me that there might be people in long-distance relationships who might be elated at receiving a postcard,something that assures them that they were on their lovers’ minds,there’s something intimate and romantic about postcards right,oh I’m old-school that way…
so here’s something I think everyone would ask of their lovers,to be remembered and to be thought of…


Carry me with you…
make me a part
of your anatomy

Send me a postcard
my beloved…
my name in your handwriting…
so I may rejoice
being on your mind
for that beautiful moment…

send me a postcard
my beloved…
so my dreams and
my memory
may get introduced
to your scent…

send me a postcard
my beloved…
so my heart may know
heartbeat
while in anticipation
I wait…
