    | Del All A Letter To Reginald
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I saw you Friday
    for the first time-
    warm & soft-smooth to touch.
    Everyone came to see you
    and your comrades-
    Were you happy to see us?
    It rained part of the time
    but you didn't seem to mind
    the raindrops.
    Did your family come?
    I don't know any but
    a cousin's wife who remembered you.
    Back when high school
    basketball and bobby socks
    were quite the rage.
    How I long to see your face
    just once-
    without the black marble glare
    of the sun and spotlights;
    to feel you-not the rock warmed
    by the sun-smoothed down by man
    and polished to a shiny gleam.
    The wall was so shiny.
    It's like the bracelet I wear-
    Your bracelet-your name and rank
    etched on it
    Did you like shiny things like jewelry?
    I've wore you for quite a while now.
    It's sorta weird
    sharing my everyday activities with
    a man so much older-
    one that's only there in spirit-
    one I've never met.
    Yeah I saw you last Friday,
    touched your name.
    You were warm and smooth and
    your name felt the same on the wall
    as it does on my bracelet.
    I'm glad you came to see me.
    One day I'll make it to see you.
    Gotta go.
    Love,
    Bree

    To covet another's abilities is human, to admire and appreciate that persons obvious talents, is surely devine. A very moving and thoughtful letter---a mysterious sense of feeling a need for a closure. So very touching, that I am undecided if it is a love letter or simply a testament of a devoted friendship.

    Man!...that was great Bree! Realy and truly, a touching poem of someone that you had carried with you on a bracelet and to find him one Friday upon The Wall.

    Yet another poet/writer here at VMBB.
    Good Deal!
